I have created a list workflow in Visual Studio which writes XML to a file on a network drive.
I have confirmed that I can access the drive from the SharePoint host. I can also manually create/modify/delete the file with my permissions.
When I try to execute the workflow from SharePoint (executed manually), I receive an exception stating that access is denied.
As I understand it, the SharePoint workflow should execute with the same credentials as the logged in user.
Is my understanding of the credentials used to execute the workflow correct? Do I need to have any special permissions set up for SharePoint itself?
