With the JavaScript editor, you can expand the functionality of applications. With the menu item Edit / Insert, a list will be opened of all edit and view elements that are located on the current page. Select the element that is to be used in the script. The following programming code will then be automatically inserted into the script editor:
getElement("GUID of element")

var NameOfElement = getElement("GUID of element");
On the Functions tab, the current functions defined in the current JavaScript are listed. You can search for a function at the top of the area.

You can find the Groovy Script Editor in the Integration module during a data transfer, if Groovy script is selected as a data source or target. Additionally, it can be found in the Processes and Applications modules. In the Processes module, it can be opened by pressing F12 from the workspace. F11 maximizes the editor window. In the Applications module, the editor can be reached via the application properties on the Handler tab.

Velocity editor

The Velocity Editor is available in the Processes and Application modules. If you define an Email action in the Processes module, you can compose messages from the processing context.

Formula editor

You can reach this editor via the calculation control in the Applications module. Formula expressions are available on the Libraries tab. The selected formula expression is either inserted in the script at the current cursor position, or replaces the currently selected text segment. Some forms contain placeholders for parameters in the form $(parameter). If you click one of these placeholders in the script, it is selected and can be replaced, either manually, by a value, or by another form expression. A value, such as the GUID of a control or a data field, can be entered from the application via the context menu or from the menu item Edit / Insert value. If a GUID or the name of a control is selected in the script and the GUID or name of the control is known, you can press the F2 key to see more information about the object in a tooltip. Press the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Space to select formulas in a tooltip. If, for example, the expression sum has been entered to the editor and you use the keyboard shortcut above, formulas are suggested that start with sum. If a parameter keyword is selected in a formula, the context menu is filtered for the corresponding parameter type. Further information can be found here:
