RE: What is the best method of passing values from BeforeSubmit to AfterSubmit portion of a User Event Script.


My objective is to pass values from the BeforeSubmit and use it in the AfterSubmit portion of a User Event Script.

After reading some doc, I found the Cache module was a viable option. But is it the best method?

Context of full script below: automate the following workaround to apply a Credit Memo to a Cash Sale  before Credit Card gateway process.


var myCache = cache.getCache({

name: 'temporaryCache',

scope: cache.Scope.PRIVATE


key: 'usedCMIDs',

value: JSON.stringify(usedCMIDs),

ttl: 18000

var usedCMIDs = JSON.parse(myCache.get({

key: 'usedCMIDs',

ttl: 18000

Could you set a custom field in beforeSubmit with whatever you need, and then get the value in afterSubmit?

Based on a SuiteAnswers article I found, this is a recommended method. [SS1.x] Pass a Value from the Before Submit to the After Submit Script

I tested the code myself and as @michoel pointed out about the not guaranteed TTL, this SESSION method does not have a TTL.


var sessionObj = runtime.getCurrentSession();
name: "myKey",
value: "myValue"
log.debug("Session object myKey value: " + sessionObj.get({name: "myKey"});
