I'm trying to let a SharePoint 2013 workflow run as a regular user (not a site collection administrator).

When starting the workflow it fails right away with the error:

RequestorId": c0c2fcc9-abfb-6e2b-f229-68417fb5815c.

In the ULS logs I can find the error "Permission check failed. asking for 0x10000, have 0x2000000000", coming from "Authentication Authorization" which I find pretty weird (what permissions are 0x10000 etc.).

When I set the user trying to execute the workflow as site collection administrator, the workflow runs through smoothly.

I tried giving the user trying to execute the workflow Site Owner permissions, Site Reader or Site Contributor - in all cases the workflow fails. Only a site collection administrator (the user or another admin) can start a workflow.


Edit: I looked into the SPBasePermissions. The error is actually saying "Permission check failed. asking for "Open", have "UseRemoteAPIs"".

Dennis, can you clarify this? Did you change the group memberships as well as run the UPS? Are you perhaps saying you created duplicate groups with identical access, so you could put the users from one OU in one group and users from the other OU in the other group? –  ron b May 5 at 19:09
    
As I stated in my answer below: The problem was with the AD group being moved from one OU to another OU. Permissions were not altered, only the location of the group. The 401 was resolved by running UPS as I understand it updates the group memberships and hence updates the security tokens. –  Dennis G May 6 at 13:55

The problem was related to the OU the users where in.

My main OU was at DOMAIN > MainOU > SubOU - in that OU are all my SharePoint groups and users. Let's take the "SharePoint Users" group as an example in that OU. It has permissions to contribute on the SharePoint.

I now had a different OU at DOMAIN > DifferentOU for test users. I gave these test users permissions on SharePoint by putting them also in the SharePoint Users group.

This is what was causing the problem:
When adding users in the same AD branch (same OU) everything is fine. But once users come from a different parallel branch (different OU), somehow the security doesn't work and I get the said error message.

To solve the problem I only had to run the User Profile Synchronization.
