workflow doesn't start when item is uploaded by app

We have a library where XML files are being placed in. On this library there is a column which is called RequestStatus.

This column is a lookup field to a list with the following choices:

- Disapproved

- Succesfull

- Succesfull with errors

- Registrated

- Approved

- In progress

I have setup a workflow on the library that starts on new items and changes. In the XML is a variable called "URL" with a value

The workflow queries the XML files checks if the URL starts with http://www.example.com/

If so then the RequestStatus is being set to Approved.

When i upload a file to the library which has the URL http://www.example.com in the XML, the workflow starts and sets the value to Approved.

When the XML is placed by an App approved account. The workflow doesnt start. Nothing happens with the workflows.

Does someone have the same issue and how can i solve it?

Thanks in advance

Kevin,

I'm assuming you are using SP2013 on-premises infrastructure, and that your workflow is therefore running on the SharePoint Foundation workflow engine. This is most likely a permission issue, see http://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/142849/2013-workflows-do-not-start-works-fine-manually...​. Hope this helps

Kind regards, Robert

Hi,

Found this thread: https://community.nintex.com/thread/5854 that might help you out. Otherwise, out of suggestions I’m afraid.
