Groovy script access modified in 7.8.0 : not in development menu anymore


On this documentation page :

The item "Manage Groovy scripts" is no longer available in the "Development menu".

I think the documentation need to be adapted the new way to accede Groovy scripts.


Bonita studio community 7.8.0 on Windows 7


Scripts are still visible in the project tree (as explained in ) and can be created with a right click on "My Project" then "New > Groovy class".

Thanks for your report on this issue.

I did the update on the documentation and this is currently waiting for a review (

Also we in order to be coherent with other actions in the Studio we will probably bring back a menu entry related to Groovy scripts management in the menu.

The documentation has been updated.

Note that in Bonita 7.9 the wizard to create Groovy classes will also let you create Groovy scripts (in 7.8 you can refactor a class to a script, see Groovy documentation to learn more about class vs script).
In Bonita Studio the Groovy scripts public static methods are listed in the Groovy script under the category "User defined" (it might require a restart of the Studio to get listed).
The documentation should be updated for 7.9.
