Grant Case Access


This Web method is used to assign privileged users to cases in Bizagi (from an external application).


This method receives a single input having mainly: any number of UserNames of the users to be added as privileged users and the respective case number.

Through this method, a user is added to a privileged list of users who have access to a Process instance (case). The values passed must be known in advance and must be sent from an external system

For further information about grant case access, please refer to Case security.


For the grantCaseAccess method, the request and response XML's are of the native .NET XmlDocument type.

For the grantCaseAccessAsString method the same XML structure is handled, but this parameter is sent as a string type using CDATA.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<xs:schema xmlns:xs="" elementFormDefault="qualified" attributeFormDefault="unqualified">
