To use PowerShell in Automise you need to have PowerShell 1.x installed on your machine. The download at the time of writing is:
Python support is included with Automise, using Microsoft's IronPython 2.0.
Active scripting based languages can be debugged using the Active Script Debugger, provided the language vendor supports debugging. To enable debugging you will need the Active Script Debugger installed, or Visual Studio.NET (which overrides the script debugger). PowerShell and Python script debugging is not yet possible.
What can I do in the Scripts
Automise Script Events are Triggered Before and After an Action Executes. See Run Script action.
Using Automise Variables in Scripts
Automise variables are available in script events as global variables. You can reference them just as you would any other identifier. In PowerShell, you must access Automise variables with the following syntax:
$FBVariables.GetVariable(<variablename>) and $FBVariables.SetVariable(<variablename>)
Using Target Parameters in Scripts
Action List Parameters are available in script events as global variables (same as Automise variables.)
Including External Scripts
You can also use Automise variables in the path, for example : 'USEUNIT "%SCRIPTPATH%\Test.vbs"
Custom Action Studio Script Actions
Entire action types can be written in Action Studio for inclusion in Automise.
