"You are not authorized for this page" error on Worklist link

Today I was playing around with a new PeopleSoft Approval Workflow setup, and was testing Worklist notifications.  The Worklist entries were generating just fine for all users. However, some users were not able to successfully click on the transaction link. When clicking on the link, they were receiving an error message "You are not authorized for this page".  I confirmed that the user did have access to the transaction Page and Component by navigating to it through the Portal menu.

I found that the issue was the user needed access to:

  • Menu: EOAW_APPROVAL_WORKFLOW
  • Component: EOAW_REDIRECT
  • Page: EOAW_REDIRECT
I created a new Permission List with this access and gave it to a Role assigned to the users. This fixed the issue.
