ServiceNow is a software platform that supports IT Service Management (ITSM) and helps automate IT Business Management (ITBM). With the integration of OpsRamp and ServiceNow, you can manage incidents and resources.

The following methods are available for integration:

  • Standard method from OpsRamp: Configuration is performed manually.
  • ServiceNow Store: Configuration is customizable for specific requirements.

The ServiceNow Store method is recommended for ServiceNow version Vancouver (or later). The Standard method is recommended for earlier versions.
