All PowerShell scripts that are used by ScriptRunner are stored and managed centrally in the script repository. A configurable directory on the ScriptRunner host is constantly monitored for changes and the scripts are parsed. Scripts can be uploaded to the repository or synchronized from an external code management branch such as Git, TFS or svn.
