Script Server UB64

Server-based Hot Folder Automation

Hot folder automation provided by Script Server integrates and automates server applications. Any sort of scriptable task or procedure can be initiated simply by saving files to a server hot folder. Even an entire server volume can be designated as a hot folder. This works completely automatically behind the scenes.

Hot Folder Automation

provided by Script Server integrates and automates  server applications. Any sort of scriptable task or procedure can be initiated simply by saving files to a server hot folder. Even an entire server volume can be designated as a hot folder. This works completely automatically behind the scenes.

Script Server is easily set up via HELIOS Admin. Users or administrators can configure hot folders, edit scripts, and monitor job status and logs. HELIOS ScriptAssistant, an interactive utility for Mac or Windows, simplifies the creation of custom Script Server scripts.

The Infrastructure

is provided by Script Server, managing event notification, file type recognition, queuing, logging, etc. The system administrator only needs to script the actual task itself. Script Server does the rest. A single script can be used for different hot folders, with customized variables for each. These variables (e.g. a printer name, or ICC profile, or image resolution) can easily be defined by users in HELIOS Admin.

Web-based Workflows

can be enabled by sharing Script Server hot folders via HELIOS WebShare. Remote proofing, PDF preflight, image conversion, and more can be accessible anywhere.

Reliability and Security

are enforced. Each script runs as a separate process, with the security credentials of a specific user. Handling of time-outs and errors ensures that the system continues even in the case of a problem.

Sample Scripts are included for common processes such as image conversion, ICC color space transforms, PDF processing, etc. These scripts can also be used as templates for custom scripts.

Script Server is included as a core feature of HELIOS ImageServer.
