When I tried to create a simple workflow to update a list item via SharePoint designer 2013 but unfortunately, It is suspended with the following error:
This problem might occur because of
- By default, the workflow doesn’t have permissions to access the list where the Workflows generally run at permission level equivalent to write.
- The user doesn’t have Contribute permission on the list.
To elevate the permissions for workflow, you should follow the mentioned steps below:
1:. Allow workflow to use app permissions.
- Using site collection administrator > Open Site > Site Settings.
- Below Site Actions > Select Manage site features.
- Activate Workflows can use app permissions feature.
2:. Grant full control permission to a workflow.
- Using site collection administrator > Open Site > Site Settings >Below Users and Permissions > Site App Permissions.
- Copy the client section of the App Identifier. This is the identifier between the last “|” and the “@” sign, as shown below.
- Navigate to grant permission to an app page by browsing the appinv.aspx page of the site.
- Paste the client section of App Identifier to the App Id field.
- Click Lookup to fetch the required info.
- Paste the following Permissions Request XML to grant full control permission.
Right="FullControl" /> </AppPermissionRequests>
- You will then be asked to trust the Workflow app, Click Trust It.
3: Develop the workflow to wrap actions inside an App Step using SharePoint Designer.
Clear the check box next to Automatic updates to workflow status to the current stage name, and then click Publish,
- Sorry, something went wrong App Management Shared Service Proxy is not installed in SharePoint Server 2013.
- Lookup an App Id was unable to retrieve its related data during granting permission to an app in SharePoint 2013.
