ServiceNow code a business rule to close parent REQ / child tasks of a RITM belt-and-braces

 Ideally the workflows and ootb business rules should handle these scenarios

but as a catch all, make it asynch update so it doesn't clash with any workflows

(function executeRule(current, previous /*null when async*/ ) { var scTask = new GlideRecord('sc_task'); scTask.addQuery('request_item', current.sys_id); scTask.addEncodedQuery('stateIN-5,1,2'); scTask.query(); while ( { scTask.state = 3; scTask.work_notes = 'Task closed as the RITM state changed to closed_complete'; scTask.update(); } })(current, previous);

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
