HAHAHUGOSHORTCODE-0xc00104d400-1-HBHB For the past several years, we have piggy-backed on the Digital Ocean event of Hacktoberfest. It started in 2017 when Josh Nerius and I put together a system to allow ServiceNow developers to accept GitHub pull requests. This year, again we are attempting to parasitically attach ourselves to the event but with a twist. Because it is a ServiceNow goal to increase the number of IntegrationHub Spokes in the world, that is what we want to focus on this month.

Developer Days In India The ServiceNow Developer Advocacy team just completed a lovely and extended visit to India. India has the most significant number of ServiceNow developers outside of the United States of America. Having so many developers makes it a pivotal place to visit to engage, empower, inspire, and listen to developers. The key events were developer meetups and all-day workshops at multiple locations. Dave Slusher - an experienced hand at India trips - and Andrew Barnes traveled from the east coast of the USA.

As we wrap up our coverage of the developer features of the New York release, we would be remiss if we didn’t talk a little about Studio itself and the developer tools it enables. Conditional Breakpoints Speaking for myself, I am a heavy user of the Script Debugger. It is a natural part of the way that I develop to want to watch values as they change in the actual running code.

Share Contributions This article will take a quick break from the New York Release feature onslaught. The ServiceNow Community is near and dear to my heart. One of those reasons is the willingness of the members to share their experiences, answer questions, and directly share useful utilities and applications for free. The most used mechanism for that is hosted here on the developer website under the share banner. The Editors Choice will now be populated by the Developer Advocates Dave Slusher and Andrew Barnes.

Dynamic Inputs One of the great features in the New York release is the inclusion of Dynamic Inputs. It can be tedious to develop a Flow when it requires a script step to transform data from one form to another. Dynamic Inputs to the rescue! Imagine the case where the inputs to an Action inside of a Flow are based on the data outside of your instance such as creating a record in an external system.

As the tour of New York features continues for Early Availability season, we come to one of our favorite features around here - IntegrationHub. Over time as the feature set becomes more robust, more and more of the functionality we create is via IntegrationHub. OpenAPI Support As of New York, there is now support for Open API. For those familiar with the WSDL concept in SOAP, this is much the same type of thing.
