Current variables

Current is the database GlideRecord that kicked off the workflow, either by association to the table in the Workflow properties table or by being associated with a catalog item.


Variables in current are the columns that are defined in the dictionary.xml file that support the database record. There is no way at runtime to add variables to the current record.


Variables of a current record are displayed on the Glide Forms and Lists throughout the applications that use them.

Access and Assignment

To access the variables or assign values to the variables within the workflow activity, get the value from the current record by referencing the Glide Element.
var myVarValue = current.getElement(nameOfTheField);
var myVarValue = current.fieldName;
current.variableName.setValue( "A Variable Value");
