Access denied. You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource.

Any thoughts please?

SharePoint Workflow Permissions

First, make sure that you have configured and evaluated the required permission for SharePoint Workflow as the following:

  • Allow workflow to use app permissions
  • Grant full control permission to SharePoint workflow
  • Develop workflow actions inside an App Step

For more details, Please check SharePoint Workflow Suspended with Unauthorized 401

You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource.

This error usually occurs if the current user doesn't have sufficient permission to use Remote Interfaces like Web Services and REST API.
In this case, you should make sure that the current user is a member of a group that has granted to the below site permissions:

Use Remote Interfaces – Use SOAP, Web DAV, the Client Object Model or SharePoint Designer interfaces to access the Web site.

For more details, Please check Access denied. You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource.
