Workflow does not start after event, raises conversion_error with wf-batch

Hello everyone, I have a WF developed with ABAP OO, I start the process in a web dynpro in portal calling an RFC-enabled FM in which I raise a CREATED event corresponding to my abap class. Whenever I log in with my user andd start the process the workflow starts correctly and executes a few background tasks, however when some other user tries to start the same process from the same web dynpro, the event is raised but no task in the workflow is executed; checking ST22 I see a conversion_error raised by wf-batch.

Then i check SWEL and with both users the event was raised correctly, the only difference I saw was that when the wf fails in SWEL the object key for the receiver was empty (it should be showing the workitem ID as far as i know).

By the way, I already checked bindings in both the event and the workflow, data types and all of that seems to be right, otherwise I would not be able to execute wf tasks with my user.

Please help, I would appreciate that very much, I don't know what the problem could be.

    If it works for one user but not another then it's most likely authorizations.

    Can you see if the event container was populated in the case where the workflow failed? Does SWEL say a receiver was found in that case?
