ServiceNow Basic Integration with BeyondTrust

Service desks and customer support organizations using ServiceNow can integrate with BeyondTrust to improve service levels, centralize support processes, and strengthen compliance. Features of the BeyondTrust and ServiceNow integration are summarized below.

  • Outbound Support Sessions - Technicians can launch BeyondTrust sessions from within ServiceNow Incidents using the Generate Session Key button.
  • Session Updates - BeyondTrust session chat transcripts are written back to ServiceNow and are associated with the Incidents from which they were started.

ServiceNow Application Scope

As of version Fuji, ServiceNow supports integrations that are developed in a global scope and integrations that are developed in an application scope. This documentation covers an integration that was developed in our BeyondTrust application scope.

Edit in Global

For this integration, administrators are prompted when configuring items that live in the global scope. For example, when configuring the Form Layout of an Incident, the user is prompted with an option to Edit this Section in Global. The recommendation for this integration is to edit the section in the global scope, which allows the user to edit the form or record without having to switch out of our BeyondTrust application scope.
