Workflow access rights insufficient

After creating a site template with workflows and using it sometimes users can not start workflows manually or not at all and get the error message about having insufficient access rights.

This is a small bug, that comes from copying the workflows with the template and happens if users are added to the site.

To make alle the workflows work, you have to :

  • open the site in SharePoint Designer with admin or system account rights
  • expand the workflow tree
  • right click on the first workflow and select properties
  • on the security tab click on the link (botton of dialog box) „Edit in Browser“
  • a browser-window will open. Add the appropriate users and/or groupe to your workflow
  • click save
  • rinse and repeat with all other workflows
