I am trying to create my first script in QGIS.

##Double attribute selection=name
##Vector=group
##Selection_layer=vector
##First_field=field Selection_layer
##expression=string 
##Second_field=field Selection_layer

from qgis.core import * 
from PyQt4.QtCore import *


layer = Selection_layer 
exp = QgsExpression("expression") 
query_1 = "First_field" + expression 
selection = layer.getFeatures(QgsFeatureRequest().setFilterExpression(query_1)) 
selected_ids = [k[Second_field] for k in selection]

ids = [] for feat in layer.getFeatures():
    if feat[Second_field] in selected_ids:
        ids.append(feat.id()) 
layer.setSelectedFeatures([l for l in ids])

Now i got error like that:

Error

And I would like to have my inputs to look like that:

Final

The script is related to my previous question: Selecting new records using values inside previous selected rows in QGIS?. Now I would like to change it to run in as a script. What I am trying to do is to select 2 fields from current layer. For the first field, I need to create a selection query. For the second one, I need to select only records which have the same number as the records from first field.

Can you help me?

You get that error because you were trying to iterate over a name (i.e. Selection_layer) instead of a vector object. So you need to get it in this way for further using:

layer = processing.getObject(Selection_layer)

In your query_1 parameter, "First_field" doesn't convert the field to a parameter because, in this way, you have just defined a field called "First_field" (which doesn't exist). You may build the query in this way:

query_1 = '"'+ First_field +'" ' + expression

Finally, there were some other indentation errors, but I think they appeared when copying & pasting the code.

However, your final code should look like this (it worked for me):

##Double attribute selection=name
##Vector=group
##Selection_layer=vector
##First_field=field Selection_layer
##expression=string is NULL
##Second_field=field Selection_layer

from qgis.core import * 
from PyQt4.QtCore import *

layer = processing.getObject(Selection_layer) 

exp = QgsExpression(expression) 
query_1 = '"'+ First_field +'" '+ expression
selection = layer.getFeatures(QgsFeatureRequest().setFilterExpression(query_1)) 
selected_ids = [k[Second_field] for k in selection]

ids = []
for feat in layer.getFeatures():
    if feat[Second_field] in selected_ids:
        ids.append(feat.id())
layer.setSelectedFeatures([l for l in ids])
