One tool. Countless opportunities.
Who needs a Scripting Engine, anyway? Most modern Enterprise Content Management systems have some sort of scripting capabilities. Adding Content Script to your Extended ECM toolkit will result in a significant improvement in the way a wide range of activities, requirements and issues can be addressed.Thanks to its flexibility, Content Script will serve you for a variety of different purposes:
> Create business-grade applications on Extended ECM
> Tailor the Extended ECM UI to your needs
> Integrate all sorts of external systems
> Extend Content Server Workflow capabilities
> Enhance the effectiveness of existing modules
> Automate tasks on Extended ECM data
Content Script APIs
Content Script provides a built-in set of Application Programming Interfaces that allow direct control over the underlying Extended ECM and integrated external systems. Content Script core APIs allow to perform through scripting automation basically any action that can be performed through the standard Extended ECM GUI.
Content Script has been engineered for easy extensibility: in addition to standard API, a growing set of extension packages allows to address the most different tasks. And new extensions can be created with the SDK.
- interact directly with Content Server core capabilities (such as creating or accessing nodes), and expose them for programmatic use within Content Script, or
- are necessary to the internal operation of the Content Script engine.
admin Includes basic admin-level capabilities, such as import/export, logging customization, system information access.
cache Provides an efficient caching mechanism in Content Script, based on Content Server's own internal Memcached framework. This is a distributed caching system used by various Content Server components.
collab Allows to control Content Server collaboration tools (Tasks, Task Groups, Projects, Discussions, Pulse, News Channels).
distagent Provides access to the Content Server Distributed Agent framework, which can be leveraged to manage the scheduled execution of simple jobs as well as complex, bulk tasks requiring a map/reduce approach.

search Provides programmatic access to Content Server built-in search and indexing capabilities. Allows to trigger searches and process results in automated ways.
sql Provides direct access to the local Content Server SQL database, and allows to run direct queries on it. Similar capabilities, but with different limitations, are provided by the 'jdbc' service.
template Provides access to various templating technologies, reused across many different capabilities of Module Suite. Can be used to generate documents, or to implement MVC (Model-View-Controller) patterns within Content Script.
users Provides access to Content Server users and groups, including basic entity details (name, email, office location, etc.) and group membership information.
workflow Allows to programmatically interact with the workflow engine, including access and control of running workflow instances, as well as the possibility to start new workflows.
- part of an optional package (for example, Records Management) which may not be available on the system, or
- part of an optional Module Suite bundle (for example, the DocuSign connector), or
- are not specific to the Document Management domain, but can be useful to enhance, extend or complete certain business scenarios.
