ServiceNow Integration Setup Guide

🕙  1 minute read

ServiceNow offers technical management support through their Now Platform. ServiceNow is used in areas such as IT business management, and operations management, HR, and more.

The ServiceNow configured integration takes advantage of available API support to connect to Catalytic. Once a configured integration is set up, use Web API actions to tap into any ServiceNow APIs and automate work.

Required Setup

Configuring the ServiceNow integration requires your ServiceNow Client ID and Client Secret. Set up will require a ServiceNow login with the correct permissions.

Before setting up the integration, walk through the steps below for How to create the Client ID and Secret.
