Unix Shell Scripts and Shebang Lines

Article ID: 343  |  Last updated: 26 Apr, 2017

Helix ALM (and TestTrack 2008 - 2016.1) supports the ability to run triggers, which can optionally execute programs. If you use a trigger to run a Unix shell script, keep the following in mind:

  • The file needs execute permissions for the root user.
  • The shebang line tells the operating system which application to use to run the script. Without it, Helix ALM cannot run the script. Following is an example of the shebang line:
    #! /bin/sh

For additional information, read the Shebang (Unix) Wikipedia entry.
