How to skip a workflow timer (using admin only ui action)

go to sys_trigger

look for name contains WFTimer

try and locate by name contains sysid of the active timer record; failing that, search for the matching next action field on date/time stamp

update the action to a few seconds from now

watch the workflow execute

UI ACTIONS ON wf_executing table:
---non-client ui action redirect:

var url='/' + current.sys_id + '&sysparm_list_mode=grid';
action.setRedirectURL ( url ) ;

UI Action - client script version:

function go_to_trigger(){

var grTr=new GlideRecord('sys_trigger');
grTr.addQuery('nameLIKE' + g_form.getUniqueValue());
if ({
//alert('in GR');
var url = new GlideURL('/');
alert('Redirecting to trigger with sys id=' + grTr.sys_id);
url.addParam('sys_id', grTr.sys_id);
//url.addParam('sysparm_table', 'sys_trigger');, "_blank");

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!/api_doc?v=madrid&id=r_GlideRecord-setValue_String_Object
