When creating a new or modifying an existing role in order to have it able to run tasks, the following error may occur:

User has attempted to run task 'any_task' (33d1fe45-32fa-4f5a-aab8-396f01bea8ba), while 1 out of 1 computers are out of required permissions.
 required permissions: 'RunScript' (7a8ca359-02fe-465c-9bd5-66cb373d3950)
 not granted for: 93d28416-1e17-42d6-bb34-16b3ca5aef99

2. Go to Settings > Security > Security Role Manager

3. Make the following changes:
