Method/Tool to automatically update script and document property in multiple dashboard Merged

We have around 50+ dashboards which share some common python script/JS Script/ Document property. In case there is some minor changes in script we have to do manual task to open each dashboard and update same individually.
Is there any Method or tool to reduce the effort for the same. Please suggest if any of below method is applicable.
1. Save script file on server and each dashboard can pick up same in run-time. similar as JS, CSS in webpage.
2. Any tool that take dashboard paths and script as input and update same in all provided dashboards.
3. any script that we can run once and that will update changes in all dashboard in library automatically .

    Action mods, introduced in Spotfire 14.4, extend Spotfire with a new type of lightweight reusable action component that can be tailored for specific domains and use cases. Using actions within visual analytics provides extensive options for carrying out tasks and enhancing workflows across all analytic elements, spanning from visualizations to data.

    From Spotfire 14.4, Automation Services jobs support looping and scripting with two new tasks: ForEach and Execute Script. These new powerful tasks can be used together and combined with the other built-in Automation Services tasks to implement an almost unlimited number of automation use cases, e.g.: Batch editing multiple analysis files or Emailing reports using a single analysis.

    Learn more about everything new in Spotfire 14.4.
