Security settings for Scripting environment

Solved6.82K viewsScripting

This arose in another context and I haven’t seen a response from the Quantrix side, so surfacing it here to make visible.

The current environment for scripting appears to use the default Java Security Policy i.e. scripts are treated as though they were applets in a browser. This means scripts have no access to the local machine i.e. they can’t load or save files, etc.

Is this intended to be the case? If so it would be highly desirable if it were possible to set an alternative security policy as an option. This would probably require a user warning/confirmation to be issued when loading such a script – similar to loading VBA scripts in Excel.

Thanks

In addition to the classloader capability Dominik mentions, I’d suggest that scripts could reasonably expect to access the filesystem (after all the Quantrix model can) and to print. Maybe not by default, but it should be possible by some level of configuration, and/or user prompting&acknowledgment.

Thanks

Simon
