Simplifies the process of creating a new record in Archer. Fields can be added in the record as script arguments and/or in the code, and create a new record.

This automation is currently used for Archer application 75 (Security Incidents), but can be altered to any other application by entering another applications ID as input and/or modifying the default ApplicationId value in the arguments. Another option would be to duplicate this script and adjust it to the new application Id.

Note - If you alter the script to work with another application some of the argument defined fields may need to be changed as well, since they belong to application 75.
