This week on the developer blog and youtube we’re focusing on the Automated Test Framework, or ATF. If you’re not already familiar, ATF enables you to create and run automated tests to confirm that your instance works after making a change. For example, after an upgrade, during application development, or when deploying instance configurations with update sets. Review failed test results to identify the changes that caused the failure and the changes that you should review.
This post is being continually updated with links to our Rome Release topic blog posts, Break Point podcasts, and Creator Toolbox (CTB), Live Coding Happy Hour (LCHH), and other video content. Rome EA is here! We here at the developer program are excited to announce the Rome Release is now available on personal developer instances! Instructions for upgrading your instance are at the bottom of this post. We’ve been hard at work getting up to speed on the Rome release so we can bring you, the ServiceNow developer, admin, or curious individual, lots of content.
We’re about a week away from Rome Season from the Developer Program and we’re really excited to bring you, the ServiceNow developer, admin, or curious individual, lots of content. We’re going to be highlighting all of the new products and features we think someone building apps on App Engine needs to know about. Next Thursday, 7⁄22, we’ll be publishing: A blog detailing how to upgrade to the Rome release on your PDI that will serve as an idex for all of our Rome related content.
The developer advocate team is currently ramping up on the Rome release features so we can start bringing you great Rome release developer content, but I wanted to pause and write this post because it’s been a little while since we’ve had a UI Builder Bytes post. I had someone reach out via the community the other day because they had seen my UI Builder - Adding a Customer Component with Events post, and they were wondering what they needed to do to get their components’ properties exposed in UI Builder in addition to the events.
Here on the developer blog we try to regularly highlight the contributions from our 2021 Developer MVPs.

For the last few years, Andrew Barnes has been serving the developer community as one of your advocates. We’re excited to share that Andrew is taking on a new role here at ServiceNow where he will focus on working closely with our customers on building best practices for citizen development, primarily, managing, governing, and scaling application development on ServiceNow (including citizen development). While we are absolutely going to miss him, we’re excited that Andrew is getting to take on this new role where he’ll be able to work even more closely with some of you on managing development on ServiceNow.
HAPPY KNOWLEDGE 2021 Now that we’re halfway through Knowledge and CreatorCon 2021 lets look back on our favorite sessions from the first week and look forward to what’s happening next week. Last Week So what happened this past week? Know21Games and Social It was fun following the #Know21Games hashtag and seeing the people participating in our social contests this past week. I especially enjoyed some of the creativity I saw from people using the Knowledge 2021 Photobooth.
In this week’s UI Builder Bytes, we’re going to take a closer look at the list components: List and List - Simple. These list components are among the more popular components in UI Builder, and I’ve seen similar questions a few times on the Now Experience community and in the sndevs slack around them. They’re questions that I also had when I first started working with UI Builder and the list components.

This week in our UI Builder Bytes series we’re going to take a closer look at client scripting. We did touch on and do a quick demo around client scripting in the UI Builder - Client state parameters, Client Scripts, and Events post, but I wanted to look at it a little deeper and call out some of the more common methods and properties you might need to use.
