  if (function_exists($function)) {

To Drupal config import a single file or a handful of files

Submitted by barnettech on Tue, 03/16/2021 - 10:01

Copy the config file(s) to a temp directory called only-few-configs (or whatver you like) and run drush cim --partial --source=/full/pathTo/only-few-configs/

This should have worked supposedly: drupal config:import:single --directory="/Users/jamesbarnett/sites/IPC/ipcedtr/config/default" --file="views.view.confirm_message_product_display.yml". (might need drupal console?)

code to grab a field value from a group module member field

  $group =  \Drupal\group\Entity\Group::load(31);
  $group_memberships = \Drupal::service('group.membership_loader')->loadByGroup($group);
  // $results = $query->execute();
  foreach ($group_memberships as $member) {
    //$group_id[] = $member->groupContent->values["field_group_id"]["x-default"][0]["value"];

This worked to grab the uid from the member

Add JavaScript and external JavaScript in Service Now

Submitted by barnettech on Wed, 12/09/2020 - 14:20

Adding a UI script allows for adding any sort of JavaScript, and it can be made global. In the left admin serach box, just type in "UI Script" and then go from there to add a new one, or search existing ones.

this worked for instance

var script = document.createElement('script'); 
script.src = "https://www.example.com/example.min.js"; 

/*var script2 = document.createElement('script'); 
script2.src = "https://www.example.com/xapis/Pretranslate/xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx.js";
