    • A new domain called "Student Services & Academics" containing catalog items to request support from Student Services and Registrar (VPSA), Associated Students of Stanford University (ASSU) and School of Medicine Registrar (MD program) will be introduced to the Stanford Services portal.
    • ServiceNow will be upgraded to the Kingston release.
    • Several OrderIT forms and provisioning tasks will move from Remedy to ServiceNow and a select few catalog items for Stanford Sites services will be integrated with the Asset Management Database (AMDB).
  • Changes in ServiceNow will be limited during the month of September 2018 to avoid possible system performance issues during the fiscal year-end activities. 

Tips and Tricks


What Changes to Expect with the Kingston Upgrade

The ServiceNow upgrade to Kingston will include several new features that look, feel and behave differently than previous versions. Reviewing the upcoming changes is the best way for fulfillers to prepare.


How Do I Get a ServiceNow Scripted API?

ServiceNow Scripted REST API is the preferred method for integrating ServiceNow with other applications. Scripted REST API ensures compliance with the data security model, reduces the number of calls required to retrieve necessary data and minimizes the risk for system performance impact.
