Groovy scripts edit with the action bar Groovy console


The Groovy app is installed by the Groovy module. The configuration of the browser and detail subapps is typical of any content app. The console subapp uses the custom subapp class info.magnolia.module.groovy.console.GroovyConsoleSubApp. Permission to access the app is limited to users assigned the scripter role. In addition, the Dev app group that this app belongs to is only available to the superuser role. This is configured in the app launcher layout. The app is configured in /modules/groovy/apps/groovy.
