PJClientCallableException: GeneralSecurityAccessDenied GeneralSecurityAccessDenied

I tried changing my workflow to just send an email to check whether there is something wrong with the workflow but emailing work I suspect it has something to do with the workflow engine service user (if there is such a thing) trying to create and Enterprise Project.

I and the admin so I have the full access but for some reason the workflow is running as a different user on my behalf.

It is a simple workflow and it looks like this

And the list looks like this with its mapping with the Project Web App Fields

Any reasons why this is happening? How do I resolve the issue? If its a workflow service user what is the user that I can give full access to creating Enterprise Projects

  • The workflow will run as the current user. Are you sure your account has the correct permissions to create a project? – Submits Aug 18 '16 at 8:52
