Script includes


Script includes are the server-side equivalent of UI scripts (which we'll learn more about in the next chapter) in that they are effectively ever-present blocks of code that exist on the server in a given application scope.

Each script include defines a class or function in ServiceNow, that's accessible from any server-side script in its scope. The name of the script include record itself must match the name of a function or class in the Script field of the record, as this will also be the API name.

Script includes can be found in the application navigator, under System Definition | Script Includes.

The default structure of a script include looks like this:

var ExampleScriptInclude = Class.create(); 
ExampleScriptInclude.prototype = { 
    initialize: function() { 
        //Constructor 
    }, 
    aMethod: function() { 
        //Do some stuff 
    }, 
    anotherMethod: function() { 
        //Do some other stuff 
    }, 
    type: 'ExampleScriptInclude' 
};
