You can integrate ServiceNow with an alert policy to automatically create an incident on your ServiceNow tenant if there is an issue with a Scout.

After you create the ServiceNow integration, you can select the integration as the notification method when you create an alert policy. For details, view Alert Policies.

  1. Click on your user at the top-right of the page, and select Integrations.
    IntegrationsMenu

  2. Select Add Integration.

  3. Set the integration Service to ServiceNow.

  4. Enter a Name for the integration. This is the name used to manage your integrations in Scoutbees.

  5. Enter the following information relevant to ServiceNow:

    • Default Urgency. Sets the level of urgency for the created incident.
    • On Resolve. Sets what happens if the issue is resolved.
