Metrici supports the creation of additional functionality using server-side JavaScript stored within nodes.

JavaScript can be used in many ways:

  • To automate processes.
  • To create new dialogs for interacting with the user.
  • To derive data from other data.
  • To create additional data to extend the regular data, for example to generate the HTML for charts.
  • To create new services, which can be used from other scripts, or for example as a web service.
  • To perform actions when the user selects a button on an edit form.
  • To validate data.
  • To perform actions triggered by data changes.

This section covers only server-side scripting. See also Web development.
