processor: fire an email when a MID is switched on in sub production

Solution for when email sending is switched off in sub production but switching on a MID could target prod systems (e.g. LDAP), a web service call is made to invoke a prod processor to queue the notification from prod

using a processor call on prod

business rule - RUNS ON SUBPROD: send alert when MID server switched on in UAT - processor via glidehttpsrequest
(function executeRule(current, previous /*null when async*/) {

//--double check that the environment is preprod
var instURL=gs.getProperty('glide.servlet.uri');
if (instURL.toLowerCase()==''){
gs.eventQueue('.preprod.mid.switchedon', current,'','');

//--now, queue the event on prod also so the email can actually fire

//--run the processor this way, so that the notification can be sent from production (business rule runs in preprod where notifications are switched off)
var url='https://<prod>';
var request=new GlideHTTPRequest(url);
request.setBasicAuth(gs.getProperty('<user>'), gs.getProperty('<pwd>'));
request.addHeader('Accept', 'application/json');
//request.addParameter('', '');
var response=request.get();
var httpStatus=response.getStatusCode();
gs.log('TESTRESP:' + httpStatus, 'preprodmid:processorcall-ON');
if (httpStatus!=200 && httpStatus!=201){
throw ('httpStatus error: ' + httpStatus);

}catch (ex){
gs.log(ex.toString(), 'preprodmid:processorcall');

})(current, previous);

---processor on prod instance:
NAME: preprodmid
PATH: preprodmid

(function process(g_request, g_response, g_processor) {
gs.log('1-entry point--', 'preprodmid');

if (!proc_checkRoles("rest_service") && !proc_checkRoles("admin")){
g_processor.writeOutput('text/plain', 'You are not authorised to view this page');
gs.log('2-unauthorised access', 'preprodmid');
g_processor.writeOutput('text/plain', '1-entry point--preprodmid');
var grMID=new GlideRecord('ecc_agent');
if ({
var on_off=g_request.getParameter('onoff');
g_processor.writeOutput('text/plain', '2-queuing PREPROD MID event, notifying SN team--preprodmid');
if (on_off=='on'){
gs.eventQueue('.preprod.mid.switchedon', grMID,'','');
if (on_off=='off'){
gs.eventQueue('.preprod.mid.switchedoff', grMID,'','');
gs.log('2-queuing PREPROD MID event, notifying SN team', 'preprodmid');

})(g_request, g_response, g_processor);

function proc_checkRoles(role){
var au = new ArrayUtil();
var roles = gs.getSession().getRoles() + '';
var roleArray = roles.split(",");
var isAuthorized = au.contains(roleArray, role);
return isAuthorized;

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
