Configuring ServiceNow Integration

Foglight ServiceNow Integration allows using ServiceNow API to create ServiceNow incidents for Foglight alarms.


Using Foglight ServiceNow Integration requires a ServiceNow account with ServiceNow roles:

Configuring ServiceNow integration

Select Dashboard Administration > Integration > ServiceNow Integration to open ServiceNow configuration dashboard.
Click Get Started to start the configuration wizard.
In the first wizard screen, ServiceNow Instance Account, connect to the ServiceNow instance by providing the ServiceNow URL and credential.
Click Next and Foglight will verify the provided ServiceNow instance URL and credential. If the verification passes, the Summary page will be displayed.
Then click Finish and the ServiceNow Integration main Dashboard will be displayed, which includes General Setting tab and Service Synchronization tab.
General Setting tab displays current ServiceNow Integration settings and status.
Service Synchronization tab lists all Foglight services and allows user to configure service based alarm to incident synchronization.

Foglight ServiceNow supports service based alarm synchronization, users can configure service based alarm synchronization in Service Synchronization dashboard:

Click the Category column for the selected service, and select the ServiceNow Category of the alarms you want to synchronize to.
Click Assigned Person OR Assigned Group to select the default assignee for all synchronized ServiceNow incidents.
Click Enable/Disable Synchronization to enable synchronization for the selected service.
Click the Save button to save all changes, this step is required because the configuration only works after it is saved.

If you want to keep some irrelevant alarms from falsely causing a service outage, define an alarm filter in the Service Builder.

Select Dashboard Services > Service Builder.
Click the Alarm Filters to open the Alarm Filters dialog box.
Click Add in the Alarm Filters dialog box. The Add Alarm Filter dialog box appears.
By Rule—select the By Rule check box and choose a rule for which its alarms are to be included or excluded. You can define more than one alarm filter for the same rule.
Alarms—select the types of alarms to include or exclude.
Groovy Script—refine the filtering by running an optional groovy script. The current alarm is the only parameter passed to this script, meaning you can filter on anything that is referenced by the alarm. An example of a groovy script is:
Click Create.

After applying the Alarm Filters, irrelevant alarms will not be synchronized to ServiceNow.

Foglight ServiceNow Integration helps Foglight user to synchronize FMS alarms to ServiceNow incidents.

The Backward Synchronization Strategy Configuration allows users to synchronize ServiceNow incidents status changes to Foglight. After applying the configuration, when Foglight detects the state changes in ServiceNow Incident, it will change the states of the corresponding alarms basing on the configuration.
