Use Service Now As a Content Source
ServiceNow stores tickets and help content. You can connect it with SearchUnify to find three ServiceNow content types quickly: incidents, knowledge articles, and knowledge questions.
Establish a Connection
- Click Content Sources, then Add new content source, find ServiceNow, and click Add
- Select ServiceNow.
- Give your content source a Name.
Pick a descriptive name for easier management. For instance, "ServiceNow Tickets and Help" or "Support Team ServiceNow."
It's a good practice to stick to ASCII characters because non-ASCII Unicode characters display as a series of question marks (?).
- Enter your ServiceNow instance URL in the Client URL field.
- Select the content language(s) from the Language dropdown.
- Select either Basic or OAuth for authentication.
- If you have selected Basic, then enter your ServiceNow instance user name and password and skip to step 9.
- If you have selected OAuth, then follow the instructions in Prepare Your ServiceNow Instance for OAuth Authentication to generate a Client ID and Client Secret.
- Paste your ServiceNow Client ID and Client Secret.
- Click Connect, then Allow, and finally Next.
Set Up Crawl Frequency
- Click to fire up a calendar and select a date. Only the data created or updated after the selected date will be indexed.
- Use the Frequency dropdown to select how often SearchUnify should index the data.
- Click Set.
Select Content Types and Fields for Indexing
- In the Rules tab, you can click to prevent a content type from being indexed.
- Use to add, edit, or remove content fields and click Save.
- Under By Projects, select the knowledge bases that should be indexed and click Save.
