App Engine Studio, originally delivered in the Quebec Release, is a development tool for creators of varying skill levels to build applications that meet the immediate needs of your organization. Here is a brief overview of the version released in Quebec. The Quebec version allowed developers of all skill levels to build apps fast by making it easy to spin up a data model, various experiences, and automate processes while applying security to the application.
One of the new Rome release features that I have personally been most excited about, Mobile App Builder, is now available! Built on the Now Experience UI Framework, the organizational layout and ease of navigation in the Mobile App Builder facilitates a faster and more intuitive creation of ServiceNow mobile components. Some benefits are: Organization of records in a hierarchical layout of records for easy access and reference. Streamlining of mobile configurations by: guiding users to appropriate record relationships, preventing invalid configuration choices, and auto-populating fields when creating child-record relationships.
In this post, we will provide a walk through on how to create your first and basic playbook in ServiceNow. If you saw Live Coding Happy Hour on August 19, 2021 (part 1) or September 2, 2021 (part 2), this post will go through the same material. Playbooks provide step-by-step guidance for resolving processes and enable agents to easily manage the lifecycle of cases by guiding them through sequences of tasks.
Let’s keep the Rome Release feature highlights going! Instance Scan, introduced in Quebec, was a great addition to the platform that allowed us to check our instances for issues or deviations from best practices. It is a great tool to use to maintain a high level of standard while doing development, performing releases, and during upgrades. Before Rome Instance Scanning was either manual (you executed a scan suite yourself) or scheduled.
Hey everyone! Here is a quick post about a new feature coming in Rome that will help everyone avoid licensing issues in Flow Designer. Before Rome, users working in Flow Designer may create an entire flow with custom actions and realize later that they were not licensed for some of the actions used. Starting in Rome, while in Flow Designer, if an action or subflow in your flow of if a step in your action utilizes functionality that your instance is not licensed for, a polite warning message will appear:
Rome is upon us! Today we are going to look at what is changing in Flow Designer. Be sure to check out the Rome Release Resources post to see what else is coming in Rome and how to upgrade your PDI. Check out the release notes for Flow Designer here and all of Rome’s release notes here. Performance Especially on large flows (as in, flows that have more than 100 actions), you will see loading times in Rome that are four times faster than in Quebec!
This week on the developer blog and youtube we’re focusing on the Automated Test Framework, or ATF. If you’re not already familiar, ATF enables you to create and run automated tests to confirm that your instance works after making a change. For example, after an upgrade, during application development, or when deploying instance configurations with update sets. Review failed test results to identify the changes that caused the failure and the changes that you should review.
This post is being continually updated with links to our Rome Release topic blog posts, Break Point podcasts, and Creator Toolbox (CTB), Live Coding Happy Hour (LCHH), and other video content. Rome EA is here! We here at the developer program are excited to announce the Rome Release is now available on personal developer instances! Instructions for upgrading your instance are at the bottom of this post. We’ve been hard at work getting up to speed on the Rome release so we can bring you, the ServiceNow developer, admin, or curious individual, lots of content.
We’re about a week away from Rome Season from the Developer Program and we’re really excited to bring you, the ServiceNow developer, admin, or curious individual, lots of content. We’re going to be highlighting all of the new products and features we think someone building apps on App Engine needs to know about. Next Thursday, 7⁄22, we’ll be publishing: A blog detailing how to upgrade to the Rome release on your PDI that will serve as an idex for all of our Rome related content.
