VB Script

VB script option.

Automation Anywhere has the ability to call VB script. However, we recommend that you use alternative methods if at all possible. Limit your use of VB script to situations where there are simply no other choices. The reasons are:

  • VB script is difficult to maintain
  • VB script is typically not understood by the customer
  • VB script files are usually prohibited by most IT departments
  • VB script files cannot easily be moved (blocked by email)

Another thing to remember is to never use Enterprise Identity Management to write VB script, or create a VB script file. Doing so is extremely difficult to maintain and is an anti-pattern at best. At worst, it demonstrates the ability to embed and deliver a malicious payload in a bot.
