When I try to run a Designer 2013 workflow with an App Step, I get the following results from my log:

7/25/2019 4:20 PM HRO ID: i:0#.f|membership|bob@bob.gov 7/25/2019 4:20 PM {"__metadata":{"type":"SP.User"},"LoginName":"i:0#.f|membership|bob@bob.gov"} 7/25/2019 4:20 PM ***User Add Response Code: Forbidden

I have configured my site to allow App Steps - I can create them in my Designer workflows and publish them successfully. I know the URL I'm passing the REST call is correct because if I paste the URL directly into my browser, I get a successful result showing me the actual members of the permissions group I'm trying to update.

What should I be looking at in configurations to remedy this?

My configurations are: enter image description here

  • The URL I'm using to make the call is: https://<<siteUrl>>/_api/SP.AppContextSite(@target)/web/sitegroups(28113)/users?@target=<<siteUrl>> – Scott Davis Jul 26 '19 at 14:14

I can reproduce your issue in my SharePoint Online environment.

As a workaround, try to use Microsoft Flow to update group:

Add The Users To The SharePoint Groups Using Microsoft Flow

  • Unfortunately, Flow has not been deployed to our environment yet. – Scott Davis Jul 30 '19 at 19:21
