This handler has the ability to have form caching disabled. To disable form caching set disable_caching to "Yes". Disabling caching may negatively impact performance, but it is also necessary when using a single handler to interact with multiple Remedy environments.

This handler takes a json as input of a format like {"DB field Name":"value to place in field"} and uses this to create a record in the specified form.

At times, you may need to set Currency Fields in Remedy. This is accomplished by formatting the value as follows: { ... "My Currency Field":{"value":100.0,"currency":"USD"}, ... } The value portion must be parsed as a float. You can accomplish this as follows in the Field Values parameter: <%= { 'Text Field 1' => 'ABCD-EFG', 'Text Field 2' => '123456', 'Currency Field 1' => {'value' => @inputs["Currency Input"].to_f, 'currency' => 'USD' }, }.to_json %>
