What do you think of Setting the security of the lane that starts a process as "Run as whoever designed the model"? Is it a good practice? What happens if the designer leaves the Company and the user gets deactivated? Is it recommened to use instead Run as whoever started the process? I am interested in knowing if this could cause a security error.

Mike Schmitt Could you please share how you created the custom app to republish with different user? Is it using the 'Republish Model as Different User' plugin? If yes, kindly share in which version of Appian you made use of this plugin.
Yes, the tool I mentioned above made use of the "republish as different user" plug-in as well as a process model which determined what models in that environment were not already published as that user, then ran through all of them.
Luckily in the interceding 3 years, subsequent Appian versions have given us new capabilities including Service Account functionality as well as direct imports (under the authority of a designated user, i.e. the service account), so the need for such a tool has been almost entirely mitigated.
Hey Mike,Would you be ok sharing a package export containing the process model you've built to republish processes as different user please.
The best I can do is direct you to this old thread where I uploaded my version that was up-to-date at that point. If I had a more recent version sometime after that, I can't be sure. However I believe the version I attached there should still work provided the necessary plug-ins.
Thank you mike so much.
