When you define an individual function as an action, instead of coding it directly into a scriptable task workflow element, you can expose it in the library for other workflows to use.


  1. From the drop-down menu in the Orchestrator client, select Design.
  2. Click the Actions view.
  3. Expand the root of the actions hierarchical list and navigate to the module in which you want to create the action.
  4. Right-click the module and select Add action.
  5. Type a name for the action in the text box and click OK.

    Your custom action is added to the library of actions.

  6. Right-click the action and select Edit.
  7. Click the Scripting tab.
  8. To change the default return type, click the void link.
  9. Add the action input parameters by clicking the arrow icon.
  10. Write the action script.
  11. Set the action permissions.
  12. Click Save and close.


You created a custom action and added the action input parameters.

What to do next

You can use the new custom action in a workflow.
