Data Sources Refresher Before I cover the newest feature, I want to provide a quick refresher on what data sources are and the role they play with importing data into your ServiceNow instance. Data sources are the first part of importing data from files, JDBC (databases), web services, and more. The data is stored in a staging table called an import set, a tabular representation of the data you extracted from the data source.

Join us as we cover a few of the new developer features in the Paris release. Chuck is joined by special guest ServiceNow Sr. Software Engineer, Dave Slusher. Dave is a familiar name (and voice) to the developer community. For several years he was a former Developer Advocate and co-host of Live Coding Happy Hour and TechNow. One detail - this discussion covers a lot of the Flow Designer and IntegrationHub features - fear not!

I’ve got three more Flow Designer enhancements to make your lives a bit easier. They are: Action instance ordering Ghost actions Duplicate action instance Action instance ordering The first is pretty straight forward. Prior to Paris, action numbering was “outline based”. Every time you added a new if, for each, or other action that created an indent level, a decimal was added on to your action numbers. While this may seem innocuous at first, it could make inline scripting challenging when referencing action 3.

Use Branches on Make a decision Flow Designer continues to improve in the Paris release. If you haven’t at least started exploring Flow Designer, or made the commitment to create your new business logic using Flow, we’ve got a couple more features in the Paris release to tempt you to take another look. Existing Flow advocates are going to love this too! First, the Make a decision logic has been improved to include a simple checkbox labeled Use Branches.

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.
