Conditional Start runs all actions as App Step?

Question asked by brentless on Mar 13, 2018

I have workflows that I want to apply conditional start criteria too (e.g. run when item is modified AND field1 equals "whatever").

 

Based on this Nintex Workflow, items are created in another list that trigger another workflow over there (a SPD workflow).  SPD workflows cannot be triggered when created or modified by "SharePoint App".

 

So I'll put some actions in App Steps and the one that creates the new list item outside of the App Step (so the item gets created by the user that started the workflow).

 

When I activate the conditional trigger, EVERY action in the workflow is then treated as if it is inside of an App Step with elevated permissions.  Therefore none of my subsequent actions run.  Is there a setting to get around this?
