Access Denied when we start SharePoint 2010 approval workflow

Error:
Access Denied when we start SharePoint 2010 approval workflow

Troubleshooting:
  • From the workflow reports I found an error  -” The workflow could not update the item, possibly because one or more columns for the item require a different type of information.”
  • Created a test list without content 
  • Got the same error on all ootb approval workflow
  • Disabled content approval on the list, still got the same issue
  • During troubleshooting found – “Update the approval status after the workflow is completed (use this workflow to control content approval)” enabled on the workflow
  • First disabled it on test workflow as we already have content approval enabled for the list
  • Checked workflow behavior
  • It worked successfully, so chnaged and applied the same settings to prod workflow
  • Once all testing done successfully on test list, implemented the same settings to actual list 

Solution and Cause:
  • “Update the approval status after the workflow is completed (use this workflow to control content approval)” enabled on the workflow
  • Workflows started working by removing check box option from this option

About Pratik Vyas

Hi Readers, Welcome to Pratik’s SharePoint Blog. First of all Thank you very much for taking interest and spending time to tour my Blog I am in the ocean of SharePoint since January 2008 (almost 4 years), and still I feel I have to go more deep. I am working with a well known MNC as a SharePoint Consultant. Here I used consultant because I do a little development and customization with administration. I am very much interested in Microsoft products. I have started blogging since 2008 but I can say in real manner I have started it in 2011 (as I have posted only 4-5 blogs from 2008 to 2011 J) I believe there isn’t anything impossible in SharePoint, the only thing is sometimes we have to think something off track. I have posted couple of blogs which was discovered by going some off track, we can simply say it TRICKS. Feel free to reach me in case of any issues or queries I will be more than happy to help you. Good bye and Happy Reading, Cheers !!
