ServiceNow provides service management software as a service, including IT services management (ITSM), IT operations management (ITOM) and IT business management (ITBM).
Creating a User in ServiceNow
Before configuring the ServiceNow connector in Lucidum, you must first create a user with read permissions for all ServiceNow assets. Lucidum will use that account to access ServiceNow.
To create a user in ServiceNow:
As an administrator, log into the ServiceNow admin panel and go to the User Administration panel.
Click "Users" and then "New". Fill in the details for this user.
Create the user and then search for it in the users screen, to configure it. Click "Edit" to edit the user's attached roles.
Assign the "itil", "rest_api_explorer", "web_service_admin" roles and then click "Save" and finally "Update" to save the user.
