Order script-based services

Background / Value

In addition to ordering user accounts, authorizations, directories or freely definable objects (OpenOrder), other script-based services can now be ordered via the web client.


The IT defines a service that can be executed via a script. The service gets a meaningful name (for example, "order a project structure on the fileserver"). The employee orders the service in the GrantMA and enters the basic data via a template. After the individually configurable approval workflow, the script is started automatically.
