Handler · Version 1

Cherwell Object Retrieve

Download GitHub


This handler generically retrieves a Cherwell object and returns a JSON representation of the found object. Execution starts by retrieving an Access Token from Cherwell using the client id/secret and username/password info values. Once that is successfully retrieved, the Object Name is translated into a Business Object Id by using the /getbusinessobjectsummary endpoint. The returned Business Object Id and inputted Object Id are then passed to the /getbusinessobject endpoint to retrieve the full matching object. Lastly, the fields return are converted from an array to a simplified map of field information in the form of {displayName: value}.
