HAScript on ACS

The HAScript on ACS doesn't include any command of loop. So we couldn't convert scripts from iAW.

About escape sequence, HAScript doesn't recognize normally.

Could you please solve the above situation as soon as you can?

Use Case:

Scripts on iAW have loop command, but HAScript on ACS doesn't have loop command. So we can't convert scripts.

About escape sequence, in the HAScript code editor, we can put "#x0D" and "#x0A" into the script, code edittor don't save as it is.
