KB-XXXX ERROR:Work Item Cancelled (Data Inputs) thrown from a process model node


A process model throws the following error, either when running or when a failed node is restarted.

Additionally, the following error appears in the application server logs:

23:14:38,580 INFO [stdout] (default-threads - 49) 2018-07-13 23:14:38,576 [default-threads - 49] ERROR com.appiancorp.ra.workpoller.WorkItemListener - The following exception occurred while attempting to complete work item [WORK_ITEM_DETAILS] - Exception:
23:14:38,580 INFO [stdout] (default-threads - 49) com.appiancorp.suiteapi.common.exceptions.AppianRuntimeException: The user [USER] does not have sufficient privileges to perform the requested action because they are not in any role. (APNX-1-4188-001)


This issue typically occurs when the process initiator's user account has been deactivated after the process was started. Due to this, a permissions check fails when trying to execute some nodes, for example, User Input Tasks and some Unattended Activities. This issue has been reported to Appian Engineering as AN-46187.


Temporarily reactivate the user account of the initiator and add the user to a group, then remove the user from the group before allowing the process to complete. In order to ensure the deactivated account cannot be accessed, change the e-mail address to something other than the user's actual e-mail address and reset the password via the Admin Console.

Affected Versions

This applies to all versions of Appian.
