ServiceNow using GlideRecord within a GlideAggregate to access an additional column value

 ServiceNow using GlideRecord within a GlideAggregate to access an additional column value

(I wonder if there might be a smarter way of doing this?)

var sQuery='status=1^profile!=NULL';//--status=active
var sTable='x_cls_clear_skye_i_account';
var sField='profile';
var sField2='name';
var iCountValue=1;
var dupls=checkDupl (sQuery, sField, sField2, sTable, iCountValue);

function checkDupl(customQuery, fieldParam,fieldParam2, table, iCountValue){
var ga= new GlideAggregate(table);
ga.addAggregate('COUNT', fieldParam);
ga.orderByAggregate('count', fieldParam);
if (customQuery){
ga.addHaving('COUNT', '>', iCountValue);
var dupls=[];
dupls.push("The following " + ga.getRowCount() + " records have matching on " + fieldParam + ": " );
while ( {
var DuplLine=ga.getAggregate('COUNT', fieldParam) + " => " + ga.getElement(fieldParam) + "; " + ga.getDisplayValue(fieldParam);

var gr=new GlideRecord(table);
if (gr.get(fieldParam, ga.getElement(fieldParam))){
DuplLine=DuplLine+'; ' + gr.getValue(fieldParam2);
return dupls;

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
