I have an issue that I cannot fix atm.

We created a new Security role and assigned rights to it. However Content Editors that have this role cannot edit any items as the JSS Workflow currently prohibits this, I am not sure where to change this. The newly created Role just has the ( Authoring and Sitecore Client Advanced Publishing ).

Please see attached screenshot for more info.

write access declined by workflow

Try granting at least Workflow State Write to the role in question using Security Editor. Note that you may need to enable this permission type using the Columns dialog and assign it on the "Published" workflow state item.

Enable this permission type using Columns dialog
