REST Testharness

 Scripted REST endpoint:

this is a simple example using a script include to return a hard-coded JSON string

(function process( /*RESTAPIRequest*/ request, /*RESTAPIResponse*/ response) { //--build up a test response var sRestRespStr = new testResponse_singleUser(); return sRestRespStr; })(request, response); (sample JSON:

{ "id": "yyyyy-zzzz-12323-1256-xxxxx", "known_as": "Daniel", "surname": "Smith", "email": "" }

 REST message:

a message calling the above endpoint. Here is it's HTTP Method

example script for the REST Message - the parameters are the REST Message and the HTTP Method (these can be named differently)

testUser_singleUser: function() { try { var r=new sn_ws.RESTMessageV2('test', 'test'); var resp = r.execute(); var responseBody = resp.haveError() ? resp.getErrorMessage() : resp.getBody(); var httpStatus = resp.getStatusCode(); gs.log(responseBody, 'test:responseBody'); gs.log(httpStatus, 'test:httpStatus'); var obj=JSON.parse(responseBody ); gs.log('ID='; //--get an element from the response called 'ID' /*for(var i = 0; i<obj.result.length; i++) {//--loop round elements
var ID= obj.result[i].id; }*/
} catch (ex) { gs.log(ex.toString(), 'test:error'); } }

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
