Case management: add a new 're-opened' state

Technical approach  implemented as follows:

-Added a new sys choice on State field of Case table labelled as 'Re-Opened' and with value of '2'.

-Created a new Customer Service Case Flow called 'Re-Open Case', which is responsible for the transition of state from 'Resolved' to 'Re-Opened'.

-De-activated OOB button called: 'Open Case'.

-Created a new button called: 'Re-Open Case', which will carry out the state transition specified in the new Customer Service Case Flow, as mentioned in step no. 2 above.

-Updated the existing flow formatter [sys_process_flow] called: 'Assigned' by modifying the condition field to cater for the 'Re-Opened' state as well as the 'Assigned' one, i.e. State=Assigned OR State=Re-Opened.

-Finally, updated the client script called: 'Hide Options From State Field' to hide the 'Re-Opened' state value from the drop-down list when the current state is NOT Re-Opened.

reopened correlates to 'assigned' in the flow formatter:

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 )){

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 ); }
