An user is unable to start a process when process start instance right are given for a process definition and the process is called from an object instance action.


1. Create a process "project process 1" to be started on demand.

    Link the Start and Finish steps and validate it

3. To an existing user give the following instance level rights:

    Process - Start for "project process 1" 

4. Go to Studio > Project object

5. Actions tab, create an action to execute the process above

6. Views tab > Project properties View > Actions Menu

7. Add the action we created on step 5

8. As the user with the instance right, go to a project and execute the action we created.

Expected Results: A pop-up displays telling you the process was initiated

Actual results: A pop-up displays telling you there was a problem initiating the process and to contact the administrator
