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");
  var encQuery = now_GR.getEncodedQuery();
  if ( {
    // existing acl found so use it
    createAclRole(now_GR.sys_id.toString(), role);
  } else {
    var acl = now_GR.insert();
    gs.print("   Added read access control on " + table);
    createAclRole(acl, role);

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
