Indigo DQM's Data Management Engine (DME) can execute scripts on Data Execution Plans if additional processing is required.
The process can be VBS script or an executable with arguments passed that may do additional processing on the Data Outputs or if Data is required from an API resource.
Enable the 'Execute Script / Process' option and select the location of the script. By default the 'Execute Wait' option is enabled to ensure that the execution of the process completes before any further processing is done on the Data Execution Plan.
Script processes can be executed before or after the Data Execution Plan executes. Select the option that is suitable by using the radio buttons.
Scripting is a feature that is useful for creating custom scripts to connect to API resources etc.
Script processes by default will be executed under the system shell. Security credentials can also be configured by checking 'User Credentials' and entering user details.
The script can also be embedded with the Data Execution Plan. Select the 'Embedded' option and open the script with the Script Editor.
Advanced properties for the script can be configured by scrolling to the Scripting properties and expanding the arrow on the properties page.
Scripts can be encrypted using AES 256 Advanced Encryption Standard to protect any embedded Data or intellectual property.
If the script has been encrypted check the option to ensure that the system can read and process the encrypted resources.
