Check if in Service Portal or Classic UI, and display message (catalog client script)

 

if (typeof spModal != 'undefined') {

                     // Portal

                     spModal.alert(sAlertMessage);

                }

                else {

                     // Desktop UI

                     var gm = new GlideModal();

                     gm.setTitle("Warning");

                     gm.renderWithContent(sAlertMessage);

                }


see this catalog client script example:

function onLoad() {
//Type appropriate comment here, and begin script below
var sMsg = 'test the display message';
if (typeof spModal != 'undefined') {

// Portal

spModal.alert(sMsg);

} else {

// Desktop UI
var gm = new GlideModal();
gm.setTitle("Warning");
gm.renderWithContent(sMsg);

}

}

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 ); }

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 )){
