Processes have two layers of security. To access a process model, a user must have permission to access the process model and the folder that contains that process model. Moreover, all process models that are stored in My Models (a private folder) cannot be shared with other users in the system. If you want to allow another user to edit a process model that is currently saved in your My Models folder, you must save it in a different folder.
To view a process model, in most cases the user must have view rights for the process model itself and for the folder that contains it. Keep in mind that it is possible to view the process model without authenticating against the folder permissions by typing the intuitive URL for the process model (if the user retains the right to view the process model).

Apart from having the necessary user rights for a process model folder, users must also be assigned access rights for the process model. See Configuring Process Model Security.
