When high security plugin is inactive, clicking New UI Action for the columns embedded list on the sys_db_object throws RP is not defined error.

Steps to Reproduce


  1. Be on a pre-high security instance
  2. Navigate to sys_db_object, and select the Incident record
  3. In the Columns embedded list, click the New button
  4. The form reloads and the following error is thrown:

RP is not defined.

org.mozilla.javascript.EcmaError: "RP" is not defined.

Caused by error in <refname> at line 2

1: var table = new GlideRecord("sys_db_object"); ==>

2: table.get(RP.getParameterValue("sysparm_collectionID"));

3: action.setRedirectURL("" +;

4: action.setReturnURL(table);


Modify the UI action to remove the use of RP if the high security plugin is not active:

  1. On this UI Action: https://<instance>
  2. Comment out or remove the second line: table.get(RP.getParameterValue("sysparm_collectionID"));
  3. Add a new line/replace the removed line with: table.get(action.getGlideURI().get('sysparm_collectionID'));
