Require a password also means validate the password is acceptable right?

That means you have to store it somehow.

Implementing s security feature using scripts and stored credentials is problematic.

Its like whack-a-mole to cover all the potential threat vectors.

You can restrict users ability to execute a script in the security settings so start there.

Is it possible to require a password to execute a script

Have a look at the Re-Login[] script step.

Not sure why you want to do this, but IMHO if you are not sure of the identity of the user, and they fail to prove it to you, you should terminate their session.

Thanks Re-Login does the trick and also makes sure that only the correct user can execute the script.

I need it as an extra step, so that a user (with the correct privileges) fully knows that he is executing the script (it also has a custom dialog before the Re-Login

The script takes to a layout where you can change serial numbers, We ocasionally (rarely) need to change them, for example when an order is shipped partially, we duplicate the record and split the order in ....A and ....B. The related portal has tools to change its numbers to ....A and ....B.

Only users who are trained on how to do this have access to the layout.

It won't make it 100% foolproof, but it will decrease the chances of accidents.

Best regards

Carlos
