A recent release to the Workiva Platform included improvements to the following products and features:
Execute report script
We've added a new command to the Oracle Analytics Cloud connector:
- Execute report script: This command returns outputs generated by executing a report script specification file.
Note: This command requires Essbase version 21c (version 21.1) or higher.
Ability to notify when an attachment is ready in Markup Viewer
When opening an attachment in the Markup Viewer, a "Notify me when my file is ready" option is now available. When the user selects this option, both email and Slack notifications will automatically be sent to the user when the attachment is ready to view. The notifications include a link for the user to go directly to the attachment in the Markup Viewer.
Role updates for scripting users
To better differentiate scripting roles and allow more granular control over script access, we've made two changes in this release:
- The Script Viewer and Script Editor roles no longer have the ability to run scripts
- The Script Runner role has been added to all existing users with the Script Viewer or Script Editor role
What does this change mean for me?
This will not impact you, your level of access, or any other existing users. Because we've added the Script Runner role to all existing profiles, your work can continue uninterrupted.
But moving forward, you must assign the Script Runner role to any new users who will execute scripts.
You can see these changes in the chart below or by viewing our scripting roles and permissions article:
|Level of access
|Can run scripts.

|Can view, create, and edit scripts.
