I have created a workflow with SharePoint Designer 2013 for SharePoint Online Portal.

My workflow works with my account with full permissions but it doesn't for other users with Edit access. I created a new user with Edit access and it works but not for the rest 100 users. The workflow fails at the very beginning where I put the following value in a local variable:

https://tenant.sharepoint.com/_api/web/lists/getbytitle('mylist')/items([%Current Item:ID%])/attachmentfiles

I get the message regarding the permissions. Again this only happens for the existing users and not for the new one I created with the same permissions as them.

I added this into an App Step to check again and still doesn't work.

Does someone now why this doesn't work and how to fix it?

Make sure that the current user added to a group that has the following permission:

Use Remote Interfaces - Use SOAP, Web DAV, the Client Object Model or SharePoint Designer interfaces to access the Web site.

Steps

  • In Site collection permission,
  • Click on the Permission Level.
  • Edit your Permission Level,
  • Go down to Site Permission section, check

Use Remote Interfaces - Use SOAP, Web DAV, the Client Object Model or SharePoint Designer interfaces to access the Web site.

For more details, Please check SharePoint Workflow Permissions

  • If you run the workflow code in an app step your workflow principal needs the same permissions. – Heiko Hatzfeld_MSFT Apr 1 '18 at 18:29
