Javascript Code Block

Execute your javascript code on the website.


Javascript code execution timeout, default to 20000ms (20 seconds). If it reaches the timeout, the workflow will continue to execute the next block.

Execute Every New Tab

This will execute the javascript code every time Automa creates a new tab or switches a tab. When this option is enabled, the javascript code block no longer requires an active tab to work and built-in functions like automaRefData, automaNextBlock, etc; will not be available. For example

execute every new tab

JavaScript Code

There're several built-in functions that you can call within the code.

automaNextBlock(data, insert?)

To tell the workflow to continue to execute the next block.

Use the data parameter to insert data into the table. This parameter can take an object or an array of objects data types. And the key of the object must be defined in the table.


automaNextBlock({ title: 'Something', count: 200 });


automaNextBlock([{ title: 'Foo', count: 300 }, { title: 'Bar', count: 200 }])


insert parameter is used to tell the workflow whether to insert the data in the data parameter into the table or not. Defaults to true.

automaSetVariable(name, value)

Set the value of the workflow variables.


automaSetVariable('name', 'John Doe');

automaSetVariable('prices', [200, 1000, 4000, 900, 200]);

automaSetVariable('profile', { firstName: 'John', lastName: 'Doe' });

automaRefData(keyword, path)

Use this function to reference data.


// Get the first row of the table
const firstRow = automaRefData('table', '0');

// Get the last row of the table
const firstRow = automaRefData('table', '$last');

// Get the "name" column on the first row of the table
const firstRow = automaRefData('table', '');

// Get the global data of the workflow
const globalData = automaRefData('globalData');

// Get the iteration data of the loop data block
const data = automaRefData('loopData', 'loopId');

// Get the value of the "text" variable
const value = automaRefData('variables', 'text');


Reset the execution timeout.
