Credentials/Permissions

Jan 21, 2011 at 5:54 PM

What credentials are used when accessing the Sharepoint list?   Problem is that I have a workflow on the list and it doesnt kick off using system, account which happens when inserting into sharepoint with the destination.  I know this is another problem but am wanting to know how credentials are used.  Thanks you for the help.

Think of the credential as impersonating the 'person' who is clicking on the sharepoint site to get the data.  If you have permission to a sharepoint list, you could give it your credentials and it would use them to add or work with the list.
