Restrict quantity per catalog item

(other options discussed by other developers in these example links, see below for my approCH


my solution:

whilst $('quantity').value worked beautifully in client script in classic UI, I could not locate an equivalent that was service portal friendly. As in this instance I did not wish to modify/copy the out of the box widget, I decided to follow this approach:

  • add a read only max quantity variable to the catalog item (reusable variable set) and set it per item in onload client script

  • below before insert business rule [sc_req_item] to override the value

(function executeRule(current, previous /*null when async*/ ) { var sMaxQuantity = current.variables.item_max_quantity + ""; if (sMaxQuantity != "") { if (parseInt(sMaxQuantity) > 0 && (parseInt(current.quantity) > parseInt(sMaxQuantity))) { var sMsg = 'This item has a maximum quantity. As a higher quantity was selected on checkout [' + current.quantity + '] this has defaulted to the maximum value [' + sMaxQuantity + ']'; //current.work_notes = sMsg; //gs.addInfoMessage(sMsg); current.comments = sMsg; } } })(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
