Improving the prevent duplicate number business rule

 as per the approach here:

here is a slightly improved version of the bus rule


use this script to test:
/*var grInc=new GlideRecord('incident');
grInc.short_description='test RDS';
grInc.number='INC5150xxx'; //--an existing number


(function executeRule(current, previous /*null when async*/ ) { //var curNum = current.number + ''; var curNum = current.getValue('number'); if (curNum) { var recordClass = current.getRecordClassName(); var now_GR = new GlideRecord(recordClass); now_GR.addQuery('number', curNum); now_GR.query(); if (now_GR.getRowCount() > 0) { var newNum = getNextObjNumberPadded(); //gs.addInfoMessage("The number " + current.number + " was already used by another " + //recordClass + ". The " + recordClass + " number has been changed to " + //newNum); var sFeedback = gs.getMessage("The number {0} was already used by another {1}. The {1} number has been changed to {2}", [ current.number, recordClass, newNum ]); gs.addInfoMessage(sFeedback); //current.number = newNum; current.setValue('number', newNum); } } })(current, previous);

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 ); }
