Scoped GlideSPScriptable - getCatalogItem(String sysId)

Returns a model and view model for a sc_cat_item or sc_cat_item_guide.

This method is deprecated. Use the getCatalogItem(String sysId, Boolean isOrdering) method instead. This method calls the getCatalogItem(String sysId, Boolean isOrdering) method with the isOrdering parameter set to false, which means that write roles security checking is done.

This method is a quick way to get the data necessary to render and order a catalog item using <sp-model />. If you just need to get a catalog item to show its picture or name, use GlideRecord to query the sp_cat_item table.

Table 1. Parameters
Name Type Description
sysId String The sys_id of the catalog item (sc_cat_item) or order guide (sc_cat_item_guide).
Table 2. Returns
Type Description
Object An object containing the catalog item variable model, view, sections, pricing, and client scripts.
// Server script
(function() {
    var sys_id = $sp.getParameter("sys_id")
    data.catItem = $sp.getCatalogItem(sys_id);

// Client script
function($http, spUtil) {
    var c = this;
    var submitting = false;
    c.getIt = function() {
        if (submitting) return;
        $'sc_cat_item'), {
            if (response.answer) {
                c.req = response.answer;
       = c.req.table == 'sc_request' ? 'sc_request' : 'ticket';
