I have a list with item level permissions on. I am creating an item in this list and I have owner permissions. The workflow gets triggered and assigns a task to a person whose permissions are restricted by the item level permissions. Right now in the workflow task he does not get a link to the list item. Will adding an App step in the workflow help?
App step will allow the workflow to be authorized with its identity as a
Full Control and ignore the current user permissions.
This is will ensure that the workflow will be executed successfully in case the current user has no permissions.
So It will help in case, you care about the person permission who initiate the workflow!! and I don't think it will hep in case, you care about the person permission who assigned to the task who restricted by the item level permissions.
