Flow cannot connect to ServiceNow

Tried using a few of the ServiceNow flow examples, but can't get past the following error when attempting to connect:

 

"Please check your account info and/or permissions and try again."

 

Not helpful.  I can't find out what's expected for the Connection Name and Instance Name parameters.  I've tried the ServiceNow full instance url as well as just the name, and neither works.  Connection Name isn't even listed in the online docs (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/service-now/#creating-a-connection).

 

Any ideas?  Working examples?  Sure would be nice if the docs went into more detail...

Re: Flow cannot connect to ServiceNow

Hi @RyderMC . Thank you for posting thie issue relating to ServiceNow.

You say "I can't find out what's expected for the Connection Name and Instance Name parameters"

Below is what I have did and it works:

Firtsly I went to https://developer.servicenow.com and created a dev instance.

I then captured the details from below, yours will be in the same format regardless of dev or production.Capture-210.png

I connected to Servicenow from Flow using the following.Capture-212.png

 

The connection name I just named it that, the instance name came from the Snow URL.

I then created a test incident in servicenow, I captured it's sys_id and did the belowCapture-211.png

It works.Capture-213.png

In summary.

Call your connection whatever you want, just get the instance name correct

https://<Instance Name>.service-now.com/nav_to.do?uri=

Re: Flow cannot connect to ServiceNow

Thanks. Turns out there was no problem with what I was doing on the Flow side; another ServiceNow role had to be added so the user could create records. In this case, we used the ITIL role.

Hi @RyderMC 

I was looking at servicenow permissions in the servicenow docs too, so glad you have got connected anyway.

Happy Flowing!

 

Thanks, Alan
