The ecm4u Policy Scripting module enables the execution of scripts on important events, such as the creation, modification or deletion of documents or the modification of document properties.
A policy is configured to change certain types, aspects or properties. In this case a script stored in the repository is executed if the 'InboundDoc' aspect or the 'receivedDate' property is changed.
Alfresco only offers the possibility to link predefined actions to events of the system. For example, actions can be executed when a document is created or deleted (set default values, send an email, validate property values). The ecm4u Policy Scripting module extends Alfresco with the ability to execute a script stored in the repository when an event occurs.
The following events are supported:
The script can be executed with extended privileges if required (system user or any other user ID). Changing the script is easily possible at runtime, i.e. without restarting Alfresco.
Unlike Alfresco Rules, the PolicyScripting module leverages Alfresco functionality Behavior, which is associated with document types and aspects so that automation is applied based on document types rather than depending on directory structures. This not only hits most business requirements better (such as approvals, document lifecycles), but is also much more performant compared to Alfresco rules.
The license allows installation on a production Alfresco repository with up to 2,000 registered users, a standby, test and development system.
The purchase price includes one year of software maintenance (updates) and support on the module via ecm4u support. After one year, 20% of the list price per year will be charged.
