Pattern temporary variables are truncated to 1024 characters (hardcoded max value)

When using Parse file to set the temporary table field, if the string users are setting is longer than 1024 characters, it is truncated, because 1024 is a hardcoded value.

Refer to MID Server parameters and Storage discovery for more information.

  1. Use the Parse file step on a pattern.
  2. Parse a value (greater than 1024 characters) from the file to a temporary variable column on a temporary variable table.

Notice that it is truncated to 1024 characters. As such, when the CI is updated with that value, the value on the CI's field has only the truncated 1024 characters.

Unable to navigate through the nodes, applications, and the database instances in any of the service maps

When users try to access the application service in the map view, the map freezes and it is unable to navigate through the nodes, applications, and the database instances in any of the service maps.

The problem happens to the synchronization between the service map and the big impact graph (more than 1K nodes). To avoid this problem, set the property em.map.disable. impact.tree.highlight to 'true'. The default value of the property is 'false' for backward compatibility.

  • When using multiple 'contains' conditions with an 'OR' condition, only the first condition is considered.

Same issues are observed from a list view with List v3 enabled.

Flow Designer

PRB1309479

Flow Designer allows recording updates from different application scopes in a single update set When editing scoped flows and subflows in Flow Designer, users do not need to switch to the correct scopes to edit them. For example, even if users are in the global scope working in a global update set, they can still edit flows in the HR scope without switching. Thus, users will have updates from the HR scope in the global update set, and it is impossible for users to commit that update set without moving the invalid updates into another update set in the correct scope.

Flow Designer

PRB1322476

The flow fails to load after being loaded as an application when it calls a subflow which calls an action When importing an application with a flow which calls a subflow that calls an action (all defined in the one application), it may fail to open in Flow Designer and an error occurs.
  1. Create an application in Studio.
  2. Add an action that takes one input string and has one output string, and make sure to set the action's application to the current one.
  3. Add a subflow that takes one input string which calls the action you just created, and then logs the action's output string.
  4. Add a flow that is triggered 'once' and calls that subflow.
  5. Export the application to GitHub.
  6. Import the application into a second instance.
  7. Attempt to open the flow or subflow in Flow Designer.

Notice that the following error occurs: 'Action Type Definition with Id of fab8eb6bdb 322300aee9765f3696199b is missing. Close tab.'

Flow Designer

PRB1336250

Intermittent display of the encoded value in the flow name In Flow Designer, the encoded HTML value of the apostrophe sometimes appears in the flow name.
  1. Create a flow with the following name: This is a test flow with a single quote '.
  2. Save the flow, and then close the flow.

Notice that in the list view of the flows, the single quote is displayed as '&#39;'.

PRB1336719

Outputs for actions (in this case, AD actions) are changed when publishing the flow Outputs for actions (in this case, AD actions) are changed when publishing the flow. After publishing, instead of 'Status', this is changed to 'Error Code' (one of the input variables of that action).

The Name/Values variables break after adding an action to a flow in Flow Designer The action with a 'Name/Values' input variable breaks after saving the flow. The Name/Values added to the variable will disappear, and clicking Add to add a new one does not do anything. An error appears in the console.
  1. Create an action in Flow Designer.
  2. Add one input variable of the type Name/Values.
  3. Add the action to a flow, and add some Name/Values.

    Some of the values can be dynamically selected from the trigger.

  4. Save the flow.
  5. Edit the action in the flow by clicking the step.

    Notice that there are no Name/Values in the input.

  6. Try to add a new one.

Notice that nothing happens. In the console, you can see an error appears saying 'e.find is not a function'.

The 'Wait for a duration' summary calculates and displays the date in mm/dd/yyyy when the system date format is dd/mm/yyyy
  1. On a Madrid instance, create a simple flow with the wait activity, for example, wait for 2 hours then create an incident.
  2. Run the test.
  3. Set the date format to dd/mm/yyyy in System Properties > Basic Configuration.
  4. Run this test on 10 June, 2019.

Notice that the test execution of this activity shows 'Timer is scheduled to wake up on Sunday, October 6th, 2019' instead of Monday, June 10th, 2019. However, when the date format is changed to mm/dd/yyyy or yyyy/mm/dd, the date is calculated and displayed correctly.

The flow engine causes out of memory issues on the instance when executing multi-level nested subflows

Flow Designer

PRB1350707

Editing nested subflows results in incomplete reporting When chaining nested subflows, editing a subflow causes the flow report to show the nested subflow as not run.
  1. Create and publish a subflow S2 that logs 'hello'.
  2. Create and publish a subflow S1 that logs 'hello' and then calls S2.
  3. Create and activate a flow F1 that calls S1.
  4. Use the Test button to run F1.
  5. Edit S1 so that it logs 'hello2'.
  6. Edit S2 so that it logs 'hello2'.
  7. Use the Test button to run F1.

Notice that the second report shows the log action of S2 as not run.

Forms and Fields

PRB1343388

Homepages and dashboards create sys_ cache_flush entries (sys cache_related_ list_user_ personalization, syscache_jelly_ script, syscache_ realform) When homepages have reports on them, every execution creates many cache entries into the sys_cache_flush table. If a user has set up many reports like this and they are executed multiple times, it could lead up to thousands of entries in the sys_cache_flush table and synchronization can be slowed down between nodes.

The Azure AD spoke action 'Look Up User ID' hides the output variable 'Status' when the flow is activated In Flow Designer, when adding the Azure AD spoke action 'Look Up User ID', the output variable 'Status' choices are no longer shown once the flow is activated. In fact, the variable disappears completely from the flow.
  1. In a Madrid instance, enable the plugin Azure AD spoke.
  2. Create a flow.
  3. Add the action 'Look Up User ID' which is provided as part of the Azure AD spoke.

PRB1347630

Incorrect timestamps for activity streams show up in the ServiceNow Agent mobile app when the timezone glide.sys.default.tz is set to various values, for example, Europe/London, US/Eastern, and Europe/Amsterdam

  5. Add a work note.

Notice that the timestamp registers as ''Europe/London' + 3 hours'. The ServiceNow Agent mobile app shows incorrect timestamps ('Europe/London' + 3hours) for activity streams when glide.sys.default.tz is set to 'Europe/London'. However, if you open the same record from desktop, the timestamp correctly shows as 'Europe/London', which is the user's current timezone in the instance.

Add the condition to the recc approval notification When a reclamation candidate is created with the 'Notify user' checked, a notification is sent out to the user. The notification that used to do this (recc approval) currently does not have a condition, which means when SAMP is installed, for all of the approvals created (not for reclamation candidates), a notification is sent with this email content instead of the default one.

Visual Task Boards

PRB1317427

The system property glide.ui.create_ task_type_option_list is not restricting to show task types based on the roles in the UI The system property glide.ui.create_ task_type_option_list contains the list of task types that are available in the UI to convert checklist items into tasks. It is not restricting to show task types based on the roles in the UI.
  1. Update the property glide.ui.create_ task_type_option_list with incident and problem values.
  2. From the data driven board, open any record.
  3. Under the checklist, create a checklist item.
  4. From this checklist item, create a task (problem/incident).

For example, an ITIL user does not have the access to create a problem, and only has the read and write access to the problem. If the ITIL user tries to create a problem/problem task from the checklist, the problem should not be visible to the ITIL user as the user does not have the create access. However, in this case, the ITIL user is able to see the Problem option but not able to create one.
