How to work with input of Array Type in Siebel eScript

Hello All,

Recently I had a requirement wherein I was getting multiple values in inputs and had to use the values one by one in my code ,perform some calculation till all values have been read from input.
The requirement can be summarized as, suppose we are given 5 Service Request number in input and we are required to perform some operation on each of them.

  • We need a way to read each Service Request number individually
  • We need to parse the input based on a delimiter

In my case I was getting the input in format as : 1-12345;1-34566;3-78686;9-09867
Multiple SR numbers separated by semicolon( ; ) as delimiter.

first i had to use Vanilla Business Service

BS : Inbound E-mail Manager 
Method : GetTokens

to parse input text and convert input string in multiple SR numbers.
For more information on this BS please refer bookshelf.

then, Iterate my code number of time and each time store the output in a variable, since the number of SR in input is not fixed i had to user arrays to dynamically store output.

Sample code looked like.
function Service_PreInvokeMethod(MethodName, Inputs, Outputs)
    if (MethodName == 'GetSRNumber')
      var Result= new Array();
      var Status = "";
      var SRInput = Inputs.GetProperty("SRInput");
      var NumberOfSR = Inputs.GetProperty("NumberOfSR");
      var Token = "";
      var oService = TheApplication().GetService("Inbound E-mail Manager");                                    
      var oInputs = TheApplication().NewPropertySet();
      var oOutputs = TheApplication().NewPropertySet();

 // call BS to parse input to separate Numbers

      oInputs.SetProperty("Delimiter", ";");
      oInputs.SetProperty("NumTokens", NumberOfSR);
      oInputs.SetProperty("Text", SRInput);
      oService.InvokeMethod("GetTokens", oInputs, oOutputs);
      for(var x = 1; x <= NumberOfSR; x++)
         Token = oOutputs.GetProperty('Token '+x);
        // Dynamically assign value in variable
          Result[x] = Token;
 return (CancelOperation);

here, NumberOfSR is the count of SR's in Input which we require to separate to individual SR, Result is a array in which we are storing values of SR Number
expression Outputs.GetProperty('Token '+x) this expression iterates in the loop for each instance i.e. for x =1 it is evaluated as
 Outputs.GetProperty("Token 1")
and for subsequent values of x as
 Outputs.GetProperty("Token 2")
 Outputs.GetProperty("Token 3")
 Outputs.GetProperty("Token 4"), here we are dynamically creating the variable based in the number of times we need to run loop.

The same way we are dynamically assigning values in Array,
expression Result[x]  this expression iterates in the loop for each instance i.e. for x =1 it is evaluated as
and for subsequent values of x as
The output of this is

we can then fetch the values of SR Number from output or we can use Property set to create Hierarchical outputs as well.

for Creating Hierarchical property sets refer the post
