Editing authentication scripts in Metastorm BPM

 Editing Metastorm authentication scripts If you’ve ever had problems with SSO in Metastorm BPM, or been required to implement an unusual authentication mechanism, you’ve probably had to go through the jig of removing, editing and re-adding the script through the System Administrator application. Having found this approach less than optimal, I added support for authentication scripts to the FreeFlow Administrator. This works somewhat differently since it allows you to edit scripts directly. This makes the edit, test and debug process much quicker. Edit the script, apply the changes, test the login (the engine picks up the new script without needing a restart) and then debug and start again if necessary. It’s probably not something you’ll use every day but when you do need it, it makes life much easier.
