ServiceNow installing SNUtils & Slash Commands

 see

https://developer.servicenow.com/blog.do?p=/tags/sn-utils/


and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJzT3HGTHXQ


Steps:

- SNUtils is a browser extension to make life easier for admin/developer: search a table, executing functions that normally would take 5 steps> reduce from 5 steps to 1 or 2 steps 
Increased productivity

- add chrome/firefox SNUtils extension - go to browser extension store or grab it here (Chrome example)
(or try arnoudkooi.com, contains the extension for other browsers including on-prem version)
Chrome version also works for Brave and other Chromium based browsers

- add the extension to your browser

- go to your servicenow instance e.g. your PDi

- click the chrome extensions icon (little puzzle icon top right of the browser)

- from there, pin the extension


- looks like this: little cog thingy





- you then get the slash commands by entering / in the left hand nav in your instance (may require a browser restart





can also enable cool script style in background scripts (via SNUtils settings)


and other settings such as being able to see database names next to field labels:

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 )){
