Getting local nodeID with Java API from within native script

Hi all,

I'm having trouble getting the local nodeID with the Java API from within a
native script.

What I want is to have my native script return only documents present
locally on the node, so I can perform some operations on them.

My plan of execution is to get the local nodeID, then create a node using
nodeBuilder within the native script and execute a search with the search
preferences "_only_node:nodeID" as part of my search criterion.

This will hopefully achieve the result I am looking for.

Does anyone have any experience doing something similar with the Java API?

Thank you.
