Cherwell Object Update Cherwell

Download GitHub


This handler generically updates a Cherwell object using an inputted JSON representation to determine what fields to update on the 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. A call to retrieve the object template is made so that the field object/ids can be found for the fields that should be updated and lastly the call is made to /savebusinessobject to update the included fields on the inputted object. An empty result set will be returned on a successful call.
