Instance Scan Sometimes a feature or product sneaks up and surprises you with the depth it provides. Instance Scan is one of those sleepers in Quebec release for me. If you check out our Live Coding Happy Hour session, you will see some of what I mean. The scanning engine provides tools to check for opportunities to improve the health of your instance. The earlier you can present those to the developers, the faster and easier it is to align to those organizational practices to help keep your instance running smoothly and maintainable.

Recently I was asked to help get a GitHub bot working with ServiceNow as the backend. What was engaging with the requirements for GitHub bots was the authentication type required. Looking at this handy blog from Thai Angsakulyanont, it was interesting to see that while I have done methods 1,2,3, the bot requires method 4, which was quite the wrench. We have explored JWT here on the blog before from none other than Dave Slusher.

Greetings to all the wonderful Developers out there! The Developer Program and I would like to thank you for being part of our community. 2020 has been a rough year, and the bright spot in my year is the ServiceNow Developer community. It really is the most welcoming, helpful, and passionate community I have had the blessing of being a part of. The blog will slow down for a couple of weeks while we refill our inkwells.
