Run the Security Exception Audit report and look for that business process.The appropriate person should reassign the errant step and redefine the process to ensure that only valid security groups are specified.

2. How do I add users to a user-based security group?

To add members to a user-based security group use the Assign User to User-Based Security Group task.
To add a user to more than one user-based security group at a time, use the Assign User-Based Security Groups for Person task.

3. Where can I find out where and how securable items are secured?

To see how a report or a task is secured, run the View Security for Securable Item report.

4. Where can I see all the permissions granted to a security group?

Use the View Security Group report. This report has a Security Permissions tab for the domain security policies and a Business Process Permissions tab for the business process security policies. You navigate to any security policy and see the securable items to which access permission is granted.

5. How can securable items end up with invalid access and how do I fix it?

The Security Exception Audit report identify any problem area. The problem and solution are explained for each exception. Generally, all you have to do is remove the invalid security group from the policy or business process.
For business processes that are already started, reassign the step that is routed to an invalid user,or rescind the process. In either case, be sure to change the business process definition for that organization to specify only valid security groups.

1. Run the View Security for Securable Item report, specifying the name of the securable item.

4. Run the View Security Groups for User report and specify the user who should be able to see the securable item.
5. Compare the security groups for the worker with the security groups for the securable item.
6. Determine whether the worker should be added to one of the security groups that has access to this item,
or if a security group the worker is already in should be granted permission to access the item.

7. What if users can access an item to which they should not have access?

1. Run the Security Analysis for Action report, specifying the name of the user and the action.  This report shows all the ways in which the user is granted access to the action, even if the action  appears in multiple domains.
