Working with ServiceNow

This section describes how to create or modify a connection to ServiceNow so that Synchronization Service could work with data in that data system.

To create a connection to ServiceNow, you need to use Synchronization Service in conjunction with a special connector called ServiceNow Connector. This connector is included in the Synchronization Service package.

The ServiceNow Connector supports the following features:

Feature

Supported

Bidirectional synchronization

Allows you to read and write data in the connected data system.

Yes

Delta processing mode

Allows you to process only the data that has changed in the connected data system since the last synchronization operation, thereby reducing the overall synchronization operation time.

No

Password synchronization

Allows you to synchronize user passwords from an Active Directory domain to the connected data system.

Yes

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) data encryption

Uses SSL to encrypt data that is transmitted between Synchronization Service and connected data system.

Yes

For instructions on how to rename a connection, delete a connection, modify synchronization scope for a connection, or specify password synchronization settings for a connection, see Synchronization Service Administration Guide.

Creating a ServiceNow connection

Creating a new connection to ServiceNow includes the following steps:

Step 1: Configure ServiceNow

In this step, you need to configure your ServiceNow instance to make it accessible to Synchronization Service.

To configure ServiceNow

  1. Open the Web site of your ServiceNow instance.

  2. In the left pane of the ServiceNow Web site, under System Properties, click Web Services.

  3. Make sure ServiceNow requires basic authorization for incoming RSS and SOAP requests.

  4. In the right pane, make sure you clear the check box.
