Need publish permissions to run runbook

I'm trying to get a runbook to run by using C:\Windows\System32\SCOJobRunner.exe -RunBookPath:"PathToMyRunbook" in powershell but each time I go to execute this I get this error back:

C:\Windows\System32\SCOJobRunner.exe :
At line:3 char:1

  • C:\Windows\System32\SCOJobRunner.exe -RunBookPath:"\In Production\Imp ...
  • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Unhandled Exception:

<error xmlns="">

at Microsoft.SystemCenter.Orchestrator.Integration.Administration.SCOJobRunner.SCOJobRunner.Main(String[] args)

I am able to run the Runbook perfectly fine through the Runbook designer itself.
I've tried running "TRUNCATE TABLE [Microsoft.SystemCenter.Orchestrator.Internal].AuthorizationCache" on the scorch db but I still get the same error when trying after.
I've made sure that the account I'm using has publish permissions on the permissions window for the runbook.

Strangely enough, there is another runbook that when I execute C:\Windows\System32\SCOJobRunner.exe -RunBookPath:"PathToMyOtherRunook" runs perfectly fine.

Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi @Nickolas Poppy ,
    sorry for the late reply.Not sure if you need still help here.
    The user running SCOJobRunner needs Publish Permissions to the Runbook. You can set this in Runbook Designer with right mouse click to the folder and "Permissions ..." in context menu. In "Advanced" you will find "Publish" to check....
