Info about the action

From scripts it is possible to request information of the actions that are responsible for the execution of the script. You can do this by calling the variable actionInfo.

The following code saves the actionInfo variable to the logs


The result is an object with the information of the action responsible for the execution of the script.

Using translations in script

The following example shows how you can use translations in scripts:

var message1 =[yyy];
var message2 = actionInfo.translations[xxx][yyy];
//Replace xxx with the translationkey and yyy with the language code (en/nl/fr/es/de/pl)

//Used in an example with the translationkey price in English.
var message1 = actionInfo.translations.price["en"];
var message2 = actionInfo.translations["price"]["en"];
