If you already have a valid ServiceNow connection, you may skip the remainder of this document and proceed to the tutorial on configuring a dataflow

Gather required credentials

In order to access your ServiceNow account on Platform, you must provide the following values:

The endpoint of the ServiceNow server.
The username used to connect to the ServiceNow server for authentication.
The password to connect to the ServiceNow server for authentication.

Connect your ServiceNow account

Once you have gathered your required credentials, you can follow the steps below to link your ServiceNow account to Platform.

Log in to Adobe Experience Platform and then select Sources from the left navigation bar to access the Sources workspace. The Catalog screen displays a variety of sources for which you can create an account with.

You can select the appropriate category from the catalog on the left-hand side of your screen. Alternatively, you can find the specific source you wish to work with using the search option.

Under the Customer Success category, select ServiceNow. If this is your first time using this connector, select Configure. Otherwise, select Connect source to create a new ServiceNow connector.

The Connect to ServiceNow page appears. On this page, you can either use new credentials or existing credentials.

New account

If you are using new credentials, select New account. On the input form that appears, provide a name, an optional description, and your ServiceNow credentials. When finished, select Connect and then allow some time for the new connection to establish.

Existing account

To connect an existing account, select the ServiceNow account you want to connect with, then select Next to proceed.

Next steps

By following this tutorial, you have established a connection to your ServiceNow account. You can now continue on to the next tutorial and configure a dataflow to bring data into Platform.
