Unable to Delete Workflow Models through a Dispatcher fronted CQ5 Author instance

Symptoms

You are accessing a CQ5 author instance through the Day Dispatcher web module and you are unable to delete workflow models.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Log into CQ author instance (make sure you're traversing through the dispatcher)
  2. Create a new workflow (title = workflowToDelete)
  3. Note the workflow was successfully created
  4. Right click on the workflow you just created and click 'delete'. Click 'yes' to confirm.
  5. Note the error message box: ERROR 'Could not delete workflow model!!'

Resolution

/clientheaders 
{ 
  ... 
"x-http-method-override"
