Sometimes while creating a workflow using a SharePoint Designer you may encounter the error Access Denied even if the user is having Full Control for the site.
First thing you should check is, whether you are having permissions on the list to which you are attaching the workflow.
If you face the problem even after doing that, ensure you do the below steps.
- Open the site in the browser.
- Right click on the Workflows folder and select Properties.
- In the Security tab, select “Manage Permissions using the browser“.
- In the workflows list’s permissions window, provide permission for the user you are facing the issue.
Now work like a charm 🙂
