Integration Points

The SPE Modules support a wide variety of predefined script libraries to help with exposing scripts to the Sitecore interface.

The following list outlines the available libraries for Integration Points that may be added to modules. These may also be generated automatically when creating or updating modules.

Note: Be certain to enable the module when you need to use it.

  • Content Editor
    • Context Menu - Visibility can be control using rules made available from within the Interactive field section.
    • Gutters - Requires the library to be synced.

The Source field simply references the script like script:/sitecore/system/Modules/PowerShell/Script Library/[MODULE NAME]/Data Sources/[SCRIPT NAME].
