Format date to hh:mm (remove seconds)

Example usage:

var grIncAlertTask = new GlideRecord('incident_alert_task');

if (grIncAlertTask.get('e84465641b026010f0dc85e4464bxxxx')) {

var util = new mimDateUtil(grIncAlertTask.incident_alert.source_incident);

util.setTimeFormat('hh:mm');

gs.print(util.formatDateField('sys_created_on'));

}


Script include:

var mimDateUtil = Class.create(); mimDateUtil.prototype = { initialize: function(gr, sDateFormat, sTimeFormat) { this.gr = gr; if (!sDateFormat) this.setDateFormat(); if (!sTimeFormat) this.setTimeFormat(); }, setDateFormat: function(sDateFormat) { this.sDateFormat = sDateFormat || 'dd-MM-yyyy'; }, setTimeFormat: function(sTimeFormat) { this.sTimeFormat = sTimeFormat || 'hh:mm:ss'; }, formatDateField: function(sField) { var sReturn = ""; if (!sField || sField == '') return sReturn; var oField = this.gr[sField]; var sFieldType = oField.getED().getInternalType(); if (sFieldType.indexOf('glide_date') == -1) { // gs.log('Not a date field', this.type); return sReturn; } /* From the DateTime field * - Get GlideDate portion and format it * - Get GlideTime portion and format it */ var gdtCreatedOn = new GlideDateTime(oField), sDatePortion = gdtCreatedOn.getDate().getByFormat(this.sDateFormat), sTimePortion = gdtCreatedOn.getTime().getByFormat(this.sTimeFormat); // Build the output string sReturn = sDatePortion + " " + sTimePortion; return sReturn; /* Ideally wanted to use this snippet * var gdtCreatedOn = new GlideDateTime(fCreatedOn); * gdtCreatedOn.setDisplayValue(fCreatedOn.getDisplayValue(),"dd-MM-yyyy hh:mm"); * gs.print("gdtCreatedOn: " + gdtCreatedOn.getDisplayValue()); * * But no. It's a complete and utter failure. Instead of stripping out the seconds * it's turned into 00. What in the actual f.... */ }, type: 'mimDateUtil' };

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 )){
