Enforce unique numbering - avoid duplicates on child tables of task

useful reading here:




for my solution I went for the recommended business rule solution, and defined the business rule to run on "task" table and inherited by child tables (incident etc)

still trying to get to the bottom of how exactly the issue of duplicate incident numbers being generated on the incident form arises, but in the meantime no more duplicate tickets in our instance!

examples of how the transaction logs might be checked for the issue:

/syslog_transaction_list.do?sysparm_query=sys_created_onBETWEENjavascript%3Ags.dateGenerate('2018-05-03'%2C'12%3A50%3A00')%40javascript%3Ags.dateGenerate('2018-05-03'%2C'12%3A50%3A59')%5EurlSTARTSWITH%2Fincident%5Esql_count%3E0%5Eresponse_time%3E25%5Esys_created_by%3DSmith

GlideRecord setValue

setValue(String name, Object value) Sets the specified field to the specified value. Normally a script would do a direct assignment, for example,  gr.category = value . However, if in a script the element name is a variable, then  gr.setValue(elementName, value)  can be used. When setting a value, ensure the data type of the field matches the data type of the value you enter. This method cannot be used on journal fields. If the value parameter is null, the record is not updated, and an error is not thrown https://developer.servicenow.com/app.do#!/api_doc?v=madrid&id=r_GlideRecord-setValue_String_Object
