Make an order guide searchable in service portal

Scratching my head on a wet July morning 💧...why can't my itil colleague access the order guide after adding her to the user criteria group referenced?? 😖

after having exhausted other possibilities (making sure user criteria are applied to the bundled items as well as the order guide itself, making sure all items are updated from availability=desktop to availability=all...)
I finally discovered this was the main issue:

  • Updated sys property
    • Old value: sc_cat_item_guide,sc_cat_item_producer,sc_cat_item_wizard
    • New value:  sc_cat_item_producer,sc_cat_item_wizard

Happy days! 😎

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
