If you need to access information from a previous step in script, and you don’t want to use Cyclr storage, you can pass the data through the way you map the step’s fields.

Pass a single value

To pass a single value to make it accessible in script, you can map the value to an available field.

For example, you might want to access a Customer ID from Step A, in script, in Step B. In Step B, you can use a field that you don’t need for your particular cycle, such as the Note field in the screenshot below:

Temporary Mapping

If there isn’t an appropriate field, you can add a custom field. You can map the field as pictured, access it, and then remove it from the request in script:

function before_action(){
	var contact_id = method_request.note;
	// do something with contact_id
	delete method_request.note;
	return true;

Pass multiple values

If you have more information to pass across, you can add multiple custom fields. If there are a lot of fields, such as am array, you can pass all the values as one long string:

Stringify the values in Step A

In the response from Step A, you need to stringify the value(s) you need and add the string to the response:

function after_action_paging(){
	method_response.string_of_fields = JSON.stringify(method_response.array_to_shrink);
	return true;

You need to add a custom field to the response of Step A to hold this string. In the example above, the field location of this custom field would be string_of_fields.

Parse the values in Step B script

First, map the stringified value to a field in Step B. As above, you might need to create a field to temporarily hold this value (in the example below, the field is string_from_step_A).

You then need to JSON.parse the string in script:

function before_action(){
	var values_from_step_A = JSON.parse(method_request.string_from_step_A);
	// Access values_from_step_A as if it were a JSON array again
	delete method_request.string_from_step_A;
	return true;
