Sets which script to call when a notification is presented.
Called for both local and remote notifications.
Parameter to the script is the ID of the notification.

Use UNNotification.AddUserInfo to associate your own values with the notifications, which you can then use in the triggered script.

With plugin version 6.0 or newer the script name can be a script ID number. In that case the plugin queries the script name for the given script ID. This allows to call scripts by ID and avoid problems if scripts are later renamed.

Notice: FileMaker 19.2 adds a fmplugin extended privileges. If you have such an extended privileges to allow the plugin to trigger scripts, you need to grant permissions for it. If such a privilege is not defined, the plugin is allowed to trigger scripts. See FileMaker product documentation for details.

MBS( "UNNotification.SetScript"; Get(Filename); "NotificationReceived" )
