Script repository

Top 10 Approvers

November 22, 2023 Views: 1947

The script creates and emails an HTML-formatted report on top 10 users who approved more operations than the others.

Note: The script uses the $Context variable available on the server side only. This means that the script can be executed only by business rules, custom commands, and scheduled tasks. For example, to schedule the report, you can create a scheduled task configured for the Domain object type. To add the script to a scheduled task, use the Run a program or PowerShell script action.


  • $to - Specifies email addresses of the recipient(s) of the report.
  • $subject - Specifies the email message subject.
  • $reportHeader - Specifies the email message header.
  • $reportFooter - Specifies the email message footer.
