It is ServiceNow new release season! With the London release in Early Access, we will cover some of the features newly available to application developers. In this post, I will discuss one very specific topic - new ways in which Flows can be initiated. When originally released in Kingston, there were two ways to start a flow: on change or insert of a record or via a schedule. That has expanded, increasing the flexibility of Flow logic.
In New for Developers in Kingston - Flow Designer, Action Designer, IntegrationHub, I touched on the basics of Flow Designer. In this post, I’ll spend some time exploring Flow Designer in more detail. Instead of trying to look at every aspect of Flow Designer in one post (that’d be a long post), I’m going to walk you through the process of creating a simple flow and we’ll touch on many of the core concepts in the process.
I’m always excited about every ServiceNow release, but Kingston brings some game changing stuff. This post is a high level overview of three new Kingston features that aren’t just ridiculously cool, they may just change the way you think about development in ServiceNow: Flow Designer, Action Designer and IntegrationHub. Note: for a deeper dive into Flow Designer, see Getting Started with Flow Designer . That intro sounds like click-bait, but I don’t think I’m exaggerating.
