ServiceNow - Bulk update users

 in this example, the 'web_service_access_only' flag has incorrectly been set to true on a large number of records:

var bUpdate=false; //bUpdate=true; //--uncomment this to update, leave commented out to run initial checks //--compare results with this url: //--https://<> var sComplexQuery='emailLIKEgov.^ORemailLIKEpolice^^user_nameNOT LIKEserviceaccount.^user_nameNOT LIKEsystem'; var grUsers=new GlideRecord('sys_user'); grUsers.addQuery('web_service_access_only', 'true'); //grUsers.addQuery('sys_id', '01b665cc1b3d54dcd9b81f4c2e4xxxx'); //--uncomment if you only want to target a single user to test the update grUsers.addEncodedQuery (sComplexQuery); if (!bUpdate){ grUsers.query(); gs.print(grUsers.getRowCount()); //--should return around 6131 users on pre-prod }else{ grUsers.autoSysFields(false);//--leave last updated intact grUsers.setWorkflow(false); //--skip business rules and notifications grUsers.setValue('web_service_access_only', 'false'); grUsers.updateMultiple(); }

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
