Scripts - Background module

Administrators can use the Scripts - Background module to run arbitrary JavaScript code from the server.

The Scripts - Background module consists of the following components.
  • A text field to enter JavaScript
  • A selector to specify the application scope
  • A Run script button
  • A list of available scripts

Administrators can run any valid JavaScript that uses the Glide API. The system displays results, information, and error messages at the top of the screen.

Note: Running free-form JavaScript can cause system disruption or data loss. ServiceNow does not recommend running free-from scripts from a production instance.

By default, administrators can access this module without elevating privileges. If you want to require elevated privileges to access this module, set the system property glide.script_processor.admin to security_admin.
