Building up a scripted REST api list of catalog tasks plus their variables

called via scripted rest endpoint

script include logic:

getOpenRequests: function() {

        //--done this way due to issues with gliderecord/memory leakage!!
        var responseObj = {};
        try {

            //gs.log('1:' + this.LINUX_SERVER_REQ);
            /*test it this way:

               var sRes= si.getOpenRequests()
               gs.print('result:\n ' +JSON.stringify(sRes));
            var itemSYSID = this.LINUX_SERVER_REQ;
            var grTasks = new GlideRecord('sc_task');
            grTasks.addQuery('request_item.cat_item=' + itemSYSID);

            responseObj.numberOfAnsibleTasks = grTasks.getRowCount();

            if (grTasks.getRowCount() > 0) {
                while ( {
var sNum = grTasks.number;
                    //return snNumberList;

                            taskObj['variable:' +variableName] = ritmVariables[variableName].getDisplayValue().toString();

        return parent; //Note: Does not break pass-by-reference, because we're declaring a new object on each loop on line 39 above.

u_getTaskField: function (grTask, fieldName){

u_getRequestValue_ReqFor: function(sysid){
//--insert code to retrieve the requested for from REQ record, pass in task.request as param
