ScriptA not calling ScriptB as expected

L2 Linker

I have some automation that I'm working on and I am not seeing the expected results.  I broke the script down into the following simple version.

 

ScriptA which is:

demisto.executeCommand("ScriptB", {})

ScriptB which is:
return_results("ScriptB Called")

when I run ScriptA, is there a reason ScriptB would not write to the war room?

Hi @jboyd98 ,

 

I would just recommend removing the [0]['Contents'] on the end of executeCommand, and do return_results(str(res)) so that you can get an understanding of the entire entry structure. Since you have multiple return_results() in ScriptB, this means the second output would actually be under res[1]["Contents"].

 

I hope this helps!

The results of ScriptB are returned from the demisto.executeCommand function. To capture the output of ScriptB, ScriptA should look something like this:

res = demisto.executeCommand("ScriptB", {})[0]["Contents"]
return_results(res)

Thanks @tyler_bailey That fixed the above.

I used the above as a test, but really what I'm trying do is understand why the context data is not available in script B.

 

ScriptA which is:

return_results(demisto.incidents()[0]) 

res = demisto.executeCommand('ScriptB', {})[0]["Contents"]
return_results(res)

ScriptB which is:
return_results("ScriptB Called")

return_results(demisto.incidents()[0])

 

Everything is expected in War Room except my ScriptB "demisto.incidents()[0]" does not seem to be called or it's empty so it doesn't return anything to war room?  ScriptA incident data is returned in the war room as a json as expected.

When ScriptB tries to reference the incident data its like it can't find it??


Does that question make sense?
