A Task fails at Generate Translation Kit step with following error

Only human steps can be claimed!

The complete error includes generic information about the Generate Translation Kit step and is not really helpful. Here is the remaining error text:

Task step: com.idiominc.ws.workflow.engine.TaskStep [ id = 16720433, name = Generate Translation Kit, description = Automatic step executing automatic action Generate Translation Kit. Generates a translation kit in the specified format (WSXZ, XLZ, TRADOS TTX, XLIFF, or Bilingual DOCX) and writes it out to a user-specified location which is set in the 'Output Directory' parameter. The file generated will be named with the format: project_< project_name >_< ID >_< locale >_.< wsxz | xlz | zip >. The third parameter is optional but, when set, will store the generated translation kit in the specified project file attachment attribute. This can be useful if there are other steps in the workflow that can use the generated translation kit, task id = 716100, task display id = 1... Affected project (Number – Project Name – Language) ....
The Generate Translation Kit step has been configured to use the Kit Exporter Type: Tasks. If you use Tasks, the next step after Generate Translation Kit must be a human step, for instance Translate
The resolution is to add a human step, for instance Translate after Generate Translation Kit. Since the WSXZStudio package is exported for users to be downloaded and opened in SDL Trados Studio, it is recommended that the human step is added right after Generate Translation Kit. Here is an example of a simple workflow:

Workaround: configure the Generate Translation Kit in the Workflow to use the Kit Exporter Type: Assets instead of Tasks as displayed here:

Save the change in the Workflow and re-submit the project. The project with the tasks in Autoerror will need to be canceled. 

Warning: if you select Kit Exporter TypeAssets, the exported WSXZ package will be named after the project, for instance: project_Test Generate Translation Kit_1_1529_Dutch (Netherlands)_workbench.wsxz. However, once you open the package in SDL Trados Studio, it will display with a  generic project name isuch as Adhoc_Project_xxxxxxx_xxxxxx"(where the first 8 digits stand for the date of the export and the last 6 digits are random). This might be confusing as the translator will not be able to see the actual project name in Studio. Here is an example:
