Script Object (SCRI)
With Script objects you can write internal processing instructions.
Object class: Executable object
Object type/Short name: SCRI
You use Script objects to write script statements to process internal instructions. They are not executed on the target system but inside the Automation Engine itself. With these objects you must use the Automation Engine scripting language.
The script is processed either at activation or at start, depending on what you define in Generate Job at on the Attributes page.
The script cannot contain JCL lines.
For detailed information and examples of the Automation Engine scripting language see About Automation Engine Scripts
