work dashboard request status permissions


Hi,

we have a main workflow where we start a subworkfow. For the main
workflow, the initiator can click on the requested process in the
request status section,to see detailed information like comments. When
the initiator does the same with the subworkflow, a error message
appears with no access rights.

We use the subworkflow only for approval and don't want the workflow to
be visible under "make a process request". Thats why we removed the
public browse rights and set the rights specific to each workflow.

It would be very useful, if the initiator could see the comments from
the subworkflow.

Is there a way to give rights to the request status without making the
workflows visible in the "make a process request" area?


Thanks in advance

Zisis

Greetings,
What you have outlined is working as designed. The item (workflow,
role, or resource) was requested for the user, but they do not have
rights to request it directly. As a result they are not allowed to see
the data related to the request in their Request History.

Re: work dashboard request status permissions


Hi,

thank you for the explanation.

Is there any trick to make this work? Give the rights to the subworkflow
and hide from the request list?

Regards

Zisis

Greetings,
Once you make them a trustee of the sub-workflow it will appear in
the list for them to use. That will resolve the "issue" with History
area, but then causes you an issue in requesting a permission.
