The Script Console is a multi-platform, multi-purpose tool that can be used to cover different scenarios in which Content Server can't be exposed directly.
Script Console can be run in multiple execution modes, depending on the task at hand.
The Script Console can be executed as a standalone server: the lightweight webserver it includes is capable of serving web pages, as well as to work as REST API endpoint for integration with remote systems.
The Script Console can also run in interactive mode, allowing Administrators to perform bulk, automatized tasks directly on Content Server without being forced to use the web interface.
An internal scheduler allows the Script Console to plan and execute tasks at predefined times. Additionally, it can be invoked directly from external scheduled jobs (for example, in crontab or windows scheduler).
The Script Console can be configured to connect to multiple Content Server instances at once. Content Scripts can be synchronized and executed across different instances.
Export Beautiful WebForms forms to external users and partners with no direct access to Content Server, collect data and import them back.
Administration tasks can be performed in a scripting fashion from a command-line terminal that can run directly on the admin's workstation, avoiding unnecessary and time consuming interaction with the GUI.
The Script Console can be used to safely integrate Content Server with external systems. Being a standalone system, it can be deployed on different environments (for example, in a DMZ). In such way it is possible to create secure infrastructures in which Content Server is not directly exposed to external systems.
