Using the collection's components, developers can create protocols that access and retrieve content from the Notebook, as well as create new experiments or modify existing experiments.
By applying the same security and access rules as the native Notebook application, users executing these protocols can only access information they are entitled to view.
In conjunction with the protocol execution framework available in the Notebook application, which allows Notebook users to execute protocols directly from the client environment, the component collection can be used to extend the functionality of those clients in an easy and straightforward manner.
Some of the use cases that can be easily implemented with the component collection include:
- Easy registration of chemical compounds from the current experiment to a registration system.
- Adding content to the current experiment by executing a protocol that retrieves it from a different system.
- Automated creation of experiments and sections with data generate by an instrument.
