    I have a quick workflow that does a couple of CommServeDB Queries which populate information in a PopupInput. When I run the workflow it works great, but if the users I am building it for use it they get a note that they need to have Administrative Management capabilities for the CommServe.

    I tried to do an ImpersonateCreator before the queries, but it seems to drop the user out of the Interactive Session, so they don't get the PopupInput displayed. This is the first time I have worked with the Impersonate functions, so I am wondering what I am missing or if this isn't possible.

    Hey jmills, I just tested this on my setup and was not able to re-produce the issue.  I had an impersonateCreator activity following by a popup input activity and the popup properly displayed the GUI.  Is is possible for you to upload a sample workflow that demonstrates the issue here and I can check it?

    You made the impersonation value true correct?


    Setting General Properties

    1. From the Workflow window, go to the Workflow Properties pane.

    2. On the General tab, in the Value column for the Name property, type the Workflow name.
    3. In the Value column for the Description property, type the purpose of the Workflow.
    4. If the Workflow requires user input during execution, in the Value column, set the Start Interactive Session property to True.
