Is it just my SharePoint 2013 environment or does anyone else experience the follow issue?
A SharePoint 2010 workflow attached to a SharePoint 2013 list cannot be started manually for individual items in the list unless the user has at least Contribute permissions to the site where the list is located.
Note the following:
- the Workflow.aspx page of a list item (where the workflows can be manually started and where the lists of running and completed workflows are) cannot be accessed (Access Denied) if the user doesn't have at least Contribute permissions to the site.
- this happens to all users who do not have at least Contribute permissions to the site.
- the list has unique permissions and users have at least Contribute permissions to it.
- the workflow history of a workflow that ran for an item in the list can be accessed by any user with access to the list, regardless of the permissions they have to the site.
- the workflows cannot be started manually by a user with Full Control on the list unless he has at least Contribute access to the site.
- if the site is on a site collection using the 2010 experience version, then the problem doesn't exist. As long as the user has at least Contribute permissions to the list item, he can access the Workflow.aspx page and manually start workflows.
- the message that the user sees when trying to access the Workflow.aspx (to manually start workflows) is: "Sorry, you don't have access to this page."
Have you experienced this? If yes, how did you solve the problem?
