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 Ben. I understand the tradeoffs, and I think you’ve probably got it right at this stage. We’ll all need to see what situations might actually drive scripts to need file system access (for example). There is always more potential for future releases :)
