Workflow – user abc has no access to menu item PurchReqTable

Lately for one of the user I run into following problem with Purchase approval workflow. During Workflow process assignment customer get error and Workflow is stopped. We get following error:

"User abc has no access to menu item PurchReqTable.” where abc is user to who workflow item should be assign

The root cause of this behavior was of course connected with user permissions. User had too low permission to be able to assign to needed task item. It happens that user was missing permission: Accounts payable -> Miscellaneous
First of all when you assign the permission to Workflow on permission form you should change Viewing from "Security" to "Workflow", then you are able to assign needed permission for selected Workflow. Although when you assign all permission for Accounts payable -> Purchase requisition -> Project purchase requisition approval you still get the same error. I found that menu item PurchReqTable in \ AOT \ Menu items \ Display \ PurchReqTable and I found out that security key assign to this menu item is: VendMisc So in Security view you need to assign user permission Accounts payable -> Miscellaneous

    We have this same error – only when the approver delegates to someone else.  I have looked at the rights suggested, but do not see that as the issue… anyone else have my problem?

  2. Hi John, DId you try some tests like: as admin user try to delegate to the normal user, as normal user delegate to admin user – it would be interesting to isolate whether it's the assigning user or the delegate who's permissions are insufficient.

    You might also find the security profiler tool useful to help identify permissions required (not just for this but in general)…/ax-2009-securityprofiler-tool.aspx

    Of course if you get stuck, just raise a support case with us – let us know you're already been on our blog – and we can help you take it from there.

    Hi, we are having this problem with PurchReqTable permission. We looked at the user rights and the menuitem PurchReqTable is marked with full access, and the Workflow is also with full acess on every item. Anyone have seen this before?

  4. Hi Thiago, did you grant access to the main VendMisc key yet? You mentioned the specific menu item, but our solution meant the main key had to be granted.
