ServiceNow Script Includes Interview Questions 2024

Hello Spectaculars,

When we look at Script Include, sometimes it is scary because these scripts are lengthy and have some curious structures. But trust me, once you understand it, it is no longer frightening and will help you save time and make things easy.

In this article, I am giving an overview of the basics of Script Includes questions and coding examples that will be very useful to developers and administrators.

What is Script Includes and where it runs?

The script includes are used to store JavaScript that runs on the server. It is a kind of on-demand code repository, that executes only when invoked or called from other script utilities of ServiceNow, such as Business rule, client script, etc.

What are the advantages of using Script Includes in ServiceNow?

  • It runs faster because code executes on the server side
  • The stored code can be reused any number of time
  • It only executes when requested, hence no overloads/ overheads.

How script include is better than the business rules?

Consider using script includes instead of global business rules because script includes are only loaded on request:-

  • They also specify whether they are active or not
  • and whether they can be called from a client script

How many types of Scripts Include in ServiceNow?

We have two main, i.e., client-callable and server-side scripts included.

What the client callable script includes do?

Client Callable Script Includes (CCSI) makes the script include available to client scripts, list/report filters, reference qualifiers, or if specified as part of the URL.

What is the private privacy setting of Script Include?

The private privacy setting means that guests who access public pages cannot access the client-callable script-include. A private script cannot be executed by a non-logged-in user.

From where we can call Script Include in ServiceNow?

  • Client Script
  • Business Rule
  • Reference Qualifier
  • Default value
  • Workflow
  • Any utility on the Client’s Side
  • Any utility on the Server Side
