First I gave a User (say UserA) with Contribute minus Delete rights to a List. When User A created items workflow did not trigger.
Then I read here contribute perms are required to get the workflow started so I gave the User A contribute perms but workflow didn't start on item creation by User A (workflow only runs when I create list item). It is the simplest Workflow and is set to start auto when item is created.
Now here it says Edit is required to get the workflow started.. All i know is Edit > Contribute. Edit OR Contribute workflow does not trigger if User is not part of Site Owners group. My brain is literally like WTF right now. Kindly help!
