    Description

      Zabbix 5.2.0 introduced the new item type "Script", and like the pre-processing feature it only supports JavaScript.

      IMHO JavaScript is nothing a typical IT system administrator like me, working at a Microsoft centric manage services provider (MSP) is capable of. I cannot write a single word of JavaScript as a Citrix and Microsoft Server Administrator, nor can my co-workers. I have co-workers which are web-developers and they can write JavaScript, but they aren't system administrators. My point is: Typical administrators can write PowerShell, Python, Perl, Bash. but not JavaScript.

      I personally can write very good PowerShell 7 scripts on Linux.
      PowerShell 7 is available on many Linux Platforms:
      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/scripting/install/installing-powershell-core-on-linux?view=powershell-7

      So my request is as following:

      Please add support to insert any script into the code field other than JavaScript and let me just choose the interpreter as an additional drop-down field in Zabbix Frontend. So the Zabbix server administrator is responsible to install the language needed on Zabbix Proxy/Server like perl, python, PowerShell, or whatever for the script interpretation.
