If you are building Now Experience UI Framework Components, you will probably need your components to interact with the ServiceNow database. To do that from a component, you’ll need to use the Http Effect API. This post will walk through using the Http effect to consume the REST Table API to display the number and short description from the latest incident in a ServiceNow PDI. It may not be the most practical use case, but the goal is to show an easy way to interact with ServiceNow data from a component.

Here on the developer blog we try to regularly highlight the contributions from our 2020 Developer MVPs. They produce an abundance of great content aimed at ServiceNow developers that I’ve listed below grouped by the content creator. I need to shout out to Jace Benson’s (one of our dev MVPs) ServiceNow news aggregator at https://jace.pro/news/, which I used extensively to put this post together.

Things are different 2020 has made many things different. A big part of the developer program’s focus every year is helping ensure high-quality content is available for developers at the Knowledge conference. We create our talks and workshops and review others in service to that effort. Since the digital experience was so different this year, we thought each of us would share a little bit about how it was unusual.

We hope everyone has been enjoying the Knowledge Digital Experience this year. It has been a few weeks since we aired the CreatorCon 2020 Hackathon finals announcing the finalists and winner, and we wanted to recognize some of the teams that didn’t make the finals, but got close. You can find those in the Honorable Mentions section below and those teams will be receiving some ServiceNow swag. We have also included links to the five-minute pitch videos submitted by many of the teams that competed.

We hope everyone has been enjoying the Knowledge 20 Digital Experience and great deal of associated content over the past 5 weeks. Since there is so much content it can be difficult to browse specific topics or know where to focus, so we want to help by calling out some of that content in a series of posts. This first post is focused on all of the sessions we found related to Virtual Agent broken down by session type.

Source Control and CI/CD Resources The Orlando release brought some major enhancements to ServiceNow’s source control integration and added some CI/CD capabilities in the form of automated testing and deployment APIs and IntegrationHub spokes. We’ve covered most of that on the blog, but recently there has been a lot more content published due to K20 and other factors. This article will detail that content. Developer Site Training Training on the ServiceNow Developer Site has used source control with GitHub for years to provide modular learning content.

Congratulations to Team Volteoans! Yesterday we showed the finals of the CreatorCon Hackathon and announced that Team Volteoans won with their app Clinical Care Management (EMR). The hackathon team would like to thank everyone for participating in the weekend-long hackathon. We had over 220 people across 50 teams submit applications by the end of the weekend and had some really impressive and innovative apps submitted. Choosing the five category winners and the grand prize winner was very difficult for our judging teams.

We have spent some time recently, through both blogs and Live Coding Happy Hour, diving into the Now Experience UI Framework launched in the Orlando release. Since we may not be coming back to that subject on the show for a little while I’m going to do a quick recap on what we’ve learned so far through the three episodes we’ve done on Now Experience Components and share some helpful resources.
