Workflow scripts enable you to restrict and dynamically change the fields and values in your modules. Therefore, you can write workflow scripts to customize the ALM desktop client user interface, and to control the actions that users can perform.
Workflow customization enables you to do the following:
|What you can do
|Create workflow scripts
You can use either the Script Generator or Script Editor tool to create workflow scripts, depending on your needs and skills.
|Edit workflow scripts
You view and edit existing workflow scripts in the Script Editor, including the scripts generated by the script generators.
For details, see Create and edit workflow scripts using Script Editor.
|Add toolbar buttons to a module window
Using the Script Editor, you can define toolbar buttons to be displayed in the window of an ALM module, or in the Manual Runner dialog box.
For details, see Add toolbar buttons.
Note: Workflow scripts run with the privileges of the logged-on user, not the privileges of the user who created the script. As a result, a script fails if it attempts any action or data change that the logged-on user is not privileged to perform, or if it accesses any restricted object that the user is not privileged to use. Therefore, a script developed by a privileged user should be tested with users that belong to the groups expected to trigger the script.
