I can call almost all operations but the exit task operation returns the message:

"PermissionDeniedException thrown with message 'User '[UserImpl:'user1']' does not have permissions to execution operation 'Exit' on task id 846'"


To be able to Exit and Administrative operations in a Human Task the user that is calling this operation must be in the group called Administrators or you can call this operation with a user called Administrator.

Root Cause

The Exit operation is a Administrative Task, so no one can invoke this Operation unless they have an Administrator privilege.
