SharePoint 2016 workflow hangs on first stage RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a workflow that is hanging on the first stage. The first stage includes the following actions:

    The involved lists are as follows:

    • List 
    • List Workflow Tasks
    • List Workflow History

    Permissions are as follows:

    • List - Authenticated Users - Contribute
    • List Workflow Tasks - Authenticated Users - Contribute
    • List Workflow History - Authenticated  Users - Contribute

    I currently have the workflow set to use App Steps and "Workflows can use app permissions" enabled but when a user submits a list item, it still hangs on the first step. I can then Terminate the workflow with my admin account an manually start it and it functions without issue.

    Here is the error I'm receiving:

    Retrying last request. Next attempt scheduled in less than one minute. Details of last request: HTTP Unauthorized to <URL>/_api/web/lists(guid'90e***3941') Correlation Id: 31b***9a2c Instance Id: e52***4ceb Access denied. You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource.

    At this point I'm just not sure where the permissions are wrong.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
