The Istanbul release introduces some very exciting features for APIs and Authentication. This post will bring you up to speed on what’s new, and we’ll follow up with more detailed posts about individual features in the coming days/weeks. New Inbound OAuth 2.0 Features Have you ever tried to build an app that integrates with ServiceNow, only to find that you couldn’t issue API calls on behalf of a specific user unless that user had credentials stored locally in the instance?
Last week, I attended the Integrate 2016 + API:World Conference & Expo (and Hackathon!) in San Jose. I met some great people, learned about some pretty interesting APIs and Integration products, and as a guy who spent his first several years with the ServiceNow platform working on APIs and building integrations, it was great getting to geek out on a subject I’ve grown to love. Hackathon I spent Saturday/Sunday hacking on the HPE Haven Sentiment API, meeting other developers, and was thoroughly impressed by the resulting hackathon projects.
