Claim / complete task not restricted to candidate group

Hi all,

I am using Alfresco 4.2.c and I created a simple workflow with 1 user task. I have set 1 specific group as a candidate group. When retrieving the pooled tasks only users within this candidate group retrieve the user task. Others don't. This behaviour is perfectly normal.

However, when using the TaskService API, I can claim and complete the task with any user. Also users who are not a member of the candidate group. I wonder if this is expected behaviour? To me it seems that claiming and completing the task should be restricted to members of the candidate group(s).

Is this a bug or is there another property to enforce this? Or is this normal behaviour do I need to check this manually?

Any insights into this are highly appreciated.

Kind regards,
