  • Go to the iblock property setup (Content > Information blocks > Information Block Types > [Require_iblock_type]).
  • Select Business Processes within the Iblock in the Used in Workflow or Business Process field.
  • If the Workflows module is not installed in the system, business process support is enabled via the option Used in Workflow or Business Process.

User groups must have sufficient access permissions for handling business processes. Go to the Access tab for a configured iblock and assign access permission level not lower than Business Processes for corresponding groups:

Attention! Business process access permission level allows for specified user groups only to participate within business processes. For users to be able to launch business processes individually, specify a higher access permission level for an iblock, for example Edit.
