    Hi,

    Is there a way to invoke external URL like google.com from automation script or is there a way to invoke launch in context from automation script ? 
    Thanks in advance.

    If you're only trying to open a new tab to a website, utilize an ACTION launch point automation script with either a push button or select action menu option and have this as your script:

    service.openURL("https://google.com",True)

    That will cause google.com to open in a new tab. You can't interact with the page after and the rest of your script would fire immediately. The script doesn't wait for them to close the page for example.
