In Share a Rule was added to a folder to Execute Script named alfGroupReview.js which contains:

// Start Workflow
function startWorkflow(assigneeGroup)
{
   var workflow = actions.create("start-workflow");
   workflow.parameters.workflowName = "activiti$alfGroupReview";
   workflow.parameters["bpm:workflowDescription"] = "Please review " + document.name;
   workflow.parameters["bpm:groupAssignee"] = assigneeGroup;
   var futureDate = new Date();
   futureDate.setDate(futureDate.getDate() + 7);
   workflow.parameters["bpm:workflowDueDate"] = futureDate;
   return workflow.execute(document);
}

function main()
{
   var name = document.name;
   var siteName = document.siteShortName;
  
   if (siteName == null)
   {
      if (logger.isLoggingEnabled())
         logger.log("Did not start alfGroupReview workflow as the document named " + name + " is not located within a site.");
        
      return;
   }
  
   // var reviewGroup = "GROUP_site_" + siteName;
   // SMD - appended name of user defined group since hidden groups (e.g. _SiteCollaborators) does not work
   var reviewGroup = "GROUP_site_" + siteName + "_collaborators";

   // make sure the group exists
   var group = people.getGroup(reviewGroup);
   if (group != null)
   {
      if (logger.isLoggingEnabled())
         logger.log("Starting alfGroupReview workflow for document named " + name + " assigned to group " + reviewGroup);

      startWorkflow(reviewGroup);

      if (logger.isLoggingEnabled())

The workflow console shows that the workflow defintion exists:
id: activiti$alfGroupReview:1:404 , name: activiti$alfGroupReview , title: Group Review And Approve Process , version: 1
The alfGroupReview workflow can be manually started and the site_<sitename>_collaborators group selected as the groupAssignee by the initiator. The workflow functions properly when manually started. :)

Problem
When a document is dropped into the folder with the Rule it results in the following output in the log file :(

As the log shows the Rule does call the Script and the GROUP_site_basicgeek_collaborators is found. However after that things fall apart.

FWIW JBPM fails too
Using the jbpm$wf:parallelgroupreview workflow shipped with Alfresco the log file show the following errors:
