Error message when you view a workflow in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0: "The requested record was not found or you do not have sufficient permissions to view it"

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Symptoms
Consider the following scenario in Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0:
  • You create a workflow on a lead entity to automatically assign new leads to a Microsoft Dynamics CRM user.
  • You import that organization into a new Microsoft Dynamics CRM environment. In this environment, you must re-map the Microsoft Dynamics CRM user to a new Active Directory user.
  • You create a new lead that triggers the workflow to try to assign it to the hard-coded Microsoft Dynamics CRM user.
  • You view the workflow.
In this scenario, you receive the following error message:
Platform Error
====================================
"The requested record was not found or you do not have sufficient permissions to view it."
User Error
====================================
"The requested record was not found or you do not have sufficient permissions to view it."
Cause
This problem occurs because workflows are stored in the pluginassemblybase table as compiled data records. The import process does not decompile these records to correct any references to the system user entity that may exist in the workflow rules. Additionally, the import process does not perform the existing workflow process instances that contain references to the system user entity. Therefore, these instances cannot run until the organization is completely imported.
