Authorization required to execute workflow

Hi experts,

I have created a simple workflow with only one step to send a mail to a particular user say (XYZ).

When I execute with userid1 the workflow is executed successfully and the mail is sent.

When I execute with userid2 the workitem is created and is in 'Ready' state, but no mail is sent to user XYZ.

Userid2 has the same roles and profiles as that of userid1 as shown in SU01.But I still doubt in the authorization object level, there might be something missing to userid2.

Hence I want you to suggest an authorization object which is exactly required to resolve my issue on userid2 or there might be something else other than authorization issue.

Please suggest.

Regards,

Karthik

    Hello,

    Use SU53 to see if it is an authorization problem.

    How do you start the workflow?

    • Hello Karthik !

      Since you doubt at authorization levels objects assigned to userid2, you can check in the tables AGR_USERS and AGR_1251 to know the authorization objects assigned to userid2.

      Enter the user name at AGR_USERS table and collect the role name.Enter that role name in table AGE_1251 and get to know the authorization objects assigned to the user from the field "OBJECT".

    Hi Karthik,

    Switch on Authorization trace in ST01 for user id2 and execute the workflow.

    Do the same with userid1.

    Then compare both trace files to identify the missing authorization.

    SU53 is better option. Please check this transaction code after executing with USER2.
