                var inform = mooletInforms.create('ServiceNow'); 
                inform.setSubject("ticket"); 
                inform.setDetails({sig_id: sigId}); inform.send(); 
        } 
else

Example

You could use the function to return which Moolets are running if a specified Alert Workflow Engine Moolet is active:

var alert = moogdb.createAlert(event); 
if(alert) 
        {
                logger.info("New Alert Id: " + alert.value("alert_id")); 
                if(Bot.isActive('AlertWorkflows')) 
                { 
                        logger.warning("Moolets running are: \n" + Bot.getActiveMoolets()); 
                }
        }

An example log might return as follows:
