Error description

  • The task owner should be able to reassign a task to any member
    of the participant group.
    .
    Trying to assign a task between users using the Process Portal
    fails with the message:
    
    "You are not authorized to reassign the task to this user"
    
    I have a participant group "AssignUsers" with a group called
    "TestAssignGroup", this group has two users user1 and user2.
    
    I have a BPD with a human task, the lane of the human task is
    configured for the participant group "AssignUsers".
     In portal I start the process with user1 and open the human
    task and assign to me the task.
    
    Now with user1 I try to assign the task to user2 and then I get
    the error message in the Process Portal
    "You are not authorized to reassign the task to this user".
    
    In 99Local.xml it is configured for all users to be able to
    assign tasks.
