ServiceNow get record last updated fields - GLOBAL scope

(for scoped app version see this article )

see https://www.servicenow.com/community/developer-forum/where-does-the-glidescriptrecordutil-come-from/m-p/1441264 

and http://snamigos.blogspot.com/2017/11/how-to-get-changed-or-modified-fields.html

notes:
- may not work in scoped applications

copy below into an after business rule on incident update for example:

(function executeRule(current, previous /*null when async*/ ) {

    gs.addInfoMessage('test br');

    gs.include('j2js');
    var gru = GlideScriptRecordUtil.get(current);
    var sChgFields = gru.getChangedFields();
    //var sChgFieldsNames = gru.getChangedFieldNames();
    //var sChg= gru.getChanges();


    gs.addInfoMessage(sChgFields);
    //gs.addInfoMessage(sChgFieldsNames);
    //gs.addInfoMessage(sChg);
})(current, previous);

script include version - additional features:


   
  this.si.getIncidentLastUpdatedFields(current);
 

getIncidentLastUpdatedFields: function (incGR) {
         
        try {
 
gs.include('j2js'); 
            var gru = GlideScriptRecordUtil.get(incGR);
             
             var changedFields = gru.getChangedFields(); //Returns an arrayList of changed field elements with friendly names
 var changedFieldNames = gru.getChangedFieldNames(); //Returns an arrayList of changed field elements with database names
 var changeds = gru.getChanges(); //Returns an arrayList of all change values from changed fields

gs.info("changedFields: " + changedFields.toString());
    gs.info("changedFieldNames: " + changedFieldNames.toString());
    gs.info("changeds: " + changeds.toString());

           
   var changedFieldsF = j2js(changedFields);
   var changedFieldNamesF = j2js(changedFieldNames);
   var changedsF = j2js(changeds);

    gs.info("Changed Fields: " + JSON.stringify(changedFieldsF));
    gs.info("Changed Field Names: " + JSON.stringify(changedFieldNamesF));
    gs.info("Changes: " + JSON.stringify(changedsF));

   
        } catch (ex) {
            gs.info('ERROR'+ex.toString());
        }
    }

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 https://developer.servicenow.com/app.do#!/api_doc?v=madrid&id=r_GlideRecord-setValue_String_Object
