Hi everyone, Due to a surge in demand for PDIs, we’ve enacted a PDI waitlist on the Developer Site. Our engineering teams are working to increase capacity (current speeds are adding hundreds of PDIs per day) across our PDI infrastructure. Once the waitlist has been cleared, we plan to have more PDIs available for all other users. If you’re currently on the waitlist, please expect it to be a few days before you can get access to a new PDI.

Starting the weekend of September 9th, Developer Site users may have noticed one of two issues affecting their ability to use or request personal developer instances (PDIs): (1) the Developer Site was showing no PDIs were available and (2) some PDIs were erroneously showing as offline. Both of these issues have been escalated to engineering and are being investigated. Read on to understand what is happening and what you can do next.

If you’re an existing Personal Developer Instance (PDI) user, you probably noticed we recently shipped a new change to disable sending and receiving emails on PDIs. Read on to learn more about what this means for you. Why are we making this change? PDIs are being used to send high levels of email spam. While we actively monitor all PDIs for suspicious activity and shut down PDIs that violate our policies, we’ve found that accidental spam activity is a growing problem.

Ever since personal developer instances were introduced, the ServiceNow developer community has had a complicated relationship with them. We give them out for free but we don’t have infinite capacity so at points we have run out of them. We introduced hibernation to allow us to fit more on the same set of infrastructure. They do expire after 10 days of disuse, and this continues to happen. However We have introduced a new feature in the program.
