Remarks

Xenioo cloud scripting action uses Javascript as a server side scripting language to extend even further your chatbot functions.

The conversation object, injected in every execution, exposes multiple methods that can be used to interact and alter the current conversation results and variables as well as manage database connections.

The Javascript source is evaluated as a single block. You are free to use functions and standard object methods. ECMAScript 3 and ECMAScript 5 functionality, including ES5 strict mode are supported by the current runtime.

A fixed 5 seconds timeout is applied to every script execution. If your script exceeds this time, it will be forcefully terminated. Given the speed of the Xenioo runtime, 5 seconds is more than enough to execute great a number of operations.
