    I  called  2010 WF  using action "Start list workflow" in  2013 WF.

    my2013WF

    Start my2010WF  no parameters and CurrentItem(out:datasource) 

    my2010WF

          Impersonation Step
    The contents of this step will run as the workflow author:
    send Email.

    if current user have permissions  "EditListItem" on site permissions  and Full Control  on list permissions  

    workflows running and no problem..

    but;

    current user have permissions  "view only" on site permissions  and Full Control  on list permissions

  • Hi Veli,

    I tested the same scenario per your post in my environment, however the user cannot access the starting workflow page if the user had view only permission on the site.

    And if I set the workflow to start automatically when item was created, the workflow canceled if the user had view only permission on the site.

    It seems that 2013 workflow should run under the user who at least has Edit item permission on the site.

    So if you do not want to grant the user Edit item permission on the site, then you can set the workflow to run with app permission.
