Setting ServiceNow as the default ticketing project



This step is required, as FireHydrant does not currently have a dedicated Runbook step for creating a ServiceNow ticket. You will need to configure ServiceNow as your default ticketing project and then use the Create an Incident Ticket step.

Selecting ServiceNow as the default project

Selecting ServiceNow as the default project

  1. Go to Settings > Ticketing settings.
  2. Under Default project, select the ServiceNow project you just configured.
  3. Click Save settings.

Creating a ServiceNow incident from a Runbook step

After you have set ServiceNow as your default ticketing project, you can create a ServiceNow incident from the Create an Incident Ticket step. This allows you to create an incident record in ServiceNow automatically any time you create an incident in FireHydrant.



This integration does not allow tracking of action items and tasks in ServiceNow. Resolving an incident in FireHydrant does not close the incident in ServiceNow.
