Notes

  • Once you are connected to your ServiceNow instance, you can select the relevant objects from ServiceNow by using the dropdown list. Given the amount of data being available via ServiceNow, the dropdown list may take some time to fully populate. Amazon AppFlow will list all tables available (including custom ones) and you can map the source fields to the destination fields during flow setup.

  • You can run your flows either on demand, or on schedule, which enables you to integrate your ServiceNow data with AWS services.

  • When you use ServiceNow as a source, you can run schedule-triggered flows at a maximum frequency of one flow run per minute.

  • ServiceNow can process up to 100,000 records as part of a single flow run.
