Recently ran into this wall which stumped me for a few. Had to get the full URL including the path from a UI Page on the server. Using my book as a reference (shameless plug) I found
RP.getReferringURL(), but this only returns the page name I found out and RP is not a usable object everywhere.
The solution was to find the actual Request object through the Transaction.
// var tr = new GlideTransaction.get(); gs.print(tr.getRequest().getRequestURL()); //
So what is happening here? GlideTransaction.get() returns the current transaction. It has a scriptable method ‘getRequest()’ which returns the underlying request for this transaction which an HTTPServletRequest. Not every method is going to be available since SN has whitelisted/blacklisted many but
There you have it the full URL with the path! What other methods have you found to get the URL?
