I have a user that can create a list item with Contribute access. When he manually triggers a workflow it tells him he doesn't have access.

The workflow simply creates a new item with the same data from the list item it's run on.

When he requests access, I get a pending request for access for the sites PARENT site.


  • Does your workflow involve multiple lists, ie, create item in a list based on an item in a different list? – MattCoats Mar 16 '17 at 14:41
  • Luckily no - I'd thought of that :/ – Ryan Mar 16 '17 at 16:01
  • Does your workflow create item in the same list or in a different list? – Noman Farooqi Mar 16 '17 at 16:17

enter image description here

your user need "Design" as minimum permission

  • Not sure why it isn't working because they have Design. That's what has been tripping me up.. – Ryan Mar 16 '17 at 16:02
  • witch type of workflow you create ex. "List, Reusable or site" workflow? – Melad Batta Mar 16 '17 at 16:30
