Script Integration

Availability: since Release 2.8.0

If an event happen in BiG EVAL, the script integration is able to run a C#-based script as a subsequent action to this event. This opens a vast amount of possibilities as a full featured programming language is available to run these actions. Some examples are:

  • Restart a data load process
  • Reboot a server
  • Post a message to Slack or Microsoft Teams
  • Trigger actions in another application that doesn’t provide any webhooks
  • etc.

  2. Click on “Script” in the “Add Integration” section.
  3. Enter a name and a description for the integration.

  6. Click on “Save”

The following example sends an HTTP-message to a specific HTTP-endpoint.


using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Net,System.Text;


    var message = "My Message";

    // Create a request using an URL that can receive a post.
    var request = WebRequest.Create("");

    // Set the Method property of the request to POST.
    request.Method = "POST";

    // Construct the JSON-body to sendand convert it to a byte array.
    var json = "{ 'text':'" + message + "' }";
    var byteArray = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(json);

    // Set the ContentType property of the WebRequest.
    request.ContentType = "application/json";

    // Set the ContentLength property of the WebRequest.
    request.ContentLength = byteArray.Length;

    // Get the request stream.
    var dataStream = request.GetRequestStream();

    // Write the data to the request stream.
    dataStream.Write(byteArray, 0, byteArray.Length);

    // Close the Stream object.

    // Get the response.
    WebResponse response = request.GetResponse();
    var statusCode = ((HttpWebResponse)response).StatusCode;

    switch (statusCode)
        case HttpStatusCode.OK:
            LogInfo("HTTP-Message successfully posted!");

            throw new Exception($"Couldn't post HTTP-Message. StatusCode: {statusCode}");
catch (Exception ex)
    LogError(ex, "HTTP-Message couldn't be posted!");
