Security settings for Scripting environment

Solved6.85K 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.




Hi Luca,

I was able to make it work on our OS X test machine here using 4.0.46. The path you gave for ScriptingLibs on a Mac is the correct one, so it should be working for you as well. If you haven’t already, one thing to try would be a complete removal and fresh reinstall of 4.0.46. If you’ve already done that or you do it and it doesn’t help, is it possible that the problem could be explained by anything other than failure to locate the library?
