GlideRecord - getEncodedQuery()

Retrieves the query condition of the current result set as an encoded query string.

For details, see Encoded query strings.

Parameters
Name Type Description
None    
Returns
Type Description
String  

Example

This example shows how to obtain the current encoded query to use later to create a read ACL role.

function createAcl(table, role) {
  gs.print("Checking security on table " + table);
  var now_GR = new GlideRecord("sys_security_acl");
  now_GR.addQuery("name", table);
  now_GR.addQuery("operation", "read");
  now_GR.query();
  var encQuery = now_GR.getEncodedQuery();
  if (now_GR.next()) {
    // existing acl found so use it
    createAclRole(now_GR.sys_id.toString(), role);
   return;
  } else {
    now_GR.initialize();
    now_GR.applyEncodedQuery(encQuery);
    var acl = now_GR.insert();
    gs.print("   Added read access control on " + table);
    createAclRole(acl, role);
  }
}

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 )){
