suitability of AutoIT for complex GUI workflows

3 posts in this topic

I know that AutoIt works great for simple workflows (e.g. launching an application for a user and logging them in automatically), but how well does it scale and work for more complex operations and workflows where there are dozens of different permutations and workflow paths like configuring a new user and assigning them appropriate permissions?

I think it works well. I created a unique GUI for a customer that has morphed into a complete HelpDesk solution. It allows the Helpdesk to do a number of actions in A.D. (Password Resets, Add/Remove from Groups, Share Permissions, etc.), it hooks directly into their asset management suite to allow the delivery of applications and imaging of hardware, allows remote control of end user PCs, and a number of other features. All of this is tied into A.D. security, giving technicians varying levels of access based on group membership. It also sports a complete audit trail (customer is a health care facility), logging every action and whether that action succeeded for failed. All of this done with AutoIT only, not a stitch of external code.

AutoIt evolved from scripting language to general purpose programming language.

Just look into Examples sections of this forum what big/complex applications can be done with AutoIt!
