We currently have part of our event system, that on the creation of content on a specific schema, a new component is created, taking values from the original. I have set this up so that the auto-created component automatically completes the first step in workflow, which then sends the workflow down a path to exit workflow.

The problem I now have is that this only works when the user doing the original creation is a system admin, with workflow privileges. When they are not, the item stays in workflow.

I think I can get around this by doing the auto-creation by impersonating the system account, which then would have the priveledges, but can't work out how to write it. Event code is in VB.Net, using Tridion 2009 SP1

  • Please post your VB.NET code where you create the TDSE object and perform the component creation.

    In order Raul's code to work the current user must be an Impersonation user. It is a bad practice to make default or interactive users Impersonation users. One of the options is to create a COM+ App that runs under an impersonation user account and acts like a wrapper/factory around a "System" TDSE object. You can contact Tridion Customer Support for the exact documentation. Commented Jun 25, 2013 at 9:28
