Script a web service call into a data source


data loader script:

(function loadData(import_set_table) { //-- var si = new test_outbound();//--call a web service via script include var resp = si.testUser_singleUser(); //gs.log('RESPONSE=' + resp); var obj = JSON.parse(resp); gs.log('ID=' +; //--do this the first time round to create the columns /*import_set_table.addColumn('id',; import_set_table.addColumn('email',; import_set_table.addColumn('firstname', obj.result.known_as); import_set_table.addColumn('lastname', obj.result.surname);*/ var map = {}; map['id'] =; map['email'] =; map['firstname'] = obj.result.known_as; map['lastname'] = obj.result.surname; import_set_table.insert(map);

//--array example:
//sNotes += results[i].appointments[0].role;


transform map (on the data source):

can then code a scheduled import on the data source

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
