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;

ServiceNow check for null or nil or empty (or not)

Haven't tested these all recently within global/local scopes, so feel free to have a play! option 1 use an encoded query embedded in the GlideRecord , e.g.  var grProf = new GlideRecord ( 'x_cls_clear_skye_i_profile' ); grProf . addQuery ( 'status=1^ owner=NULL ' ); grProf . query (); even better use the glideRecord  addNotNullQuery or addNullQuery option 2 JSUtil.nil / notNil (this might be the most powerful. See this link ) example: if ( current . operation () == 'insert' && JSUtil . notNil ( current . parent ) && ! current . work_effort . nil ())  option 3 there might be times when you need to get inside the GlideRecord and perform the check there, for example if the code goes down 2 optional routes depending on null / not null can use gs.nil : var grAppr = new GlideRecord ( 'sysapproval_approver' ); var grUser = new GlideRecord ( 'sys_user' ); if ( grUser . get ( 'sys_id' , current . approver )){

Get URL Parameter - server side script (portal or classic UI)

Classic UI : var sURL_editparam = gs . action . getGlideURI (). getMap (). get ( ' sysparm_aparameter ' ); if ( sURL_editparam == 'true' ) { gs . addInfoMessage ( 'parameter passed ); } Portal : var sURL_editparam = $sp . getParameter ( " sysparm_aparameter " ); if ( sURL_editparam == 'true' ) { gs . addInfoMessage ( 'parameter passed ); }
