    The custom code:







    function getReport(reportContext, reportName) {

    var report = null;

    try {

          report = ctxt.getAPI().getConfigTableReport(reportContext, reportName);

    } catch(e) {


        if (report == null) {

        return ctxt.getAPI().getTabularReport(reportName, reportContext);

        } else {

    var source = report.getSourceReport();

    return ctxt.getAPI().getTabularReport(source, reportContext);



    function getReportView(reportContext, reportName) {

    var report = getReport(reportContext, reportName);

        if (report == null)


    logger.addError("No such report exists for the specified context "+reportName);

    return null;


    return new TableView(report);


    var reportName = "ServiceRequestFeature.group.table_config";

    var repContext = util.createContext("6", null, null);

    var report = getReportView(repContext, reportName);

    //"report" variable holds an array of table rows from the Service Requests tabular report in UCSD//

    //Use the following filters if you want to grab specific data...here I'm getting the row where "Service Request ID" equals "333" as an example...

    var results = report.filterRowsByColumn("Service Request Id", "333", false);

    //Once you have the row you want, you can request a specific column value....here I'm requesting the value in column "Request Status" for the first row (designated by the "0")

    var status = results.getColumnValue(0, "Request Status");

    //print status to logger...

    logger.addInfo("Status equals: "+status);
