How do I find the actual value?. I can save the value to a variable but can't read the value in zerobrane, or do an if equal function on it.
I need to find if the job is 2 sided ,if it is flip to the bottom side do an operation , flip to top side, repeat operation.

GetSideList should give you both values so you can process from there I would think.

getsidelist() returns this "luaUUID list:2IDs".

What you display as a value isn't always the same thing as the value itself. I haven't tried it myself but in many languages displaying an object value will give you a human readable string rather than the actual value which you would get if you used the value directly as an argument to a function.
