Custom Table to log agent activity

for reporting on all the updates a service desk member has made during the working day
note: may be license implication of using a custom table

2 system properties
- logging enabled property (true/false)
- list of ticket types property (string ; delimited, e.g. incident;sc_task)

new table with following fields:
  ticket (reference to task)
  user (reference to sys_user)
  info (string)

business rule on TASK table, fires after insert/update
- exclude users without itil role and isInteractive=true condition, also exclude internal_integration_user=true users (condition can be amended as needed)

gs.getProperty('ticket.logging.enable')=='true' && gs.isInteractive() && gs.getUser().hasRole('itil')
(function executeRule(current, previous /*null when async*/ ) {

    //--exclude technical users
    var bProceed = false;
    var currentUser = gs.getUserID();
    var ticketTypes = gs.getProperty('ticket.logging.tickettypes');
    var ticketArr = ticketTypes.split(';');
    ticketArr.forEach(function(ticketT) {
        if (ticketT == current.getTableName()) {
            bProceed = true;
    if (bProceed) {
        var grUser = new GlideRecord('sys_user');
        if (grUser.get('sys_id', currentUser)) {
            if (!grUser.internal_integration_user) {
                //--log the user activity
                var grLogs = new GlideRecord('u_cu_ticket_log');
                grLogs.u_ticket = current.sys_id;
                grLogs.u_user = currentUser;
                grLogs.u_info = current.operation();
})(current, previous);

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
