Happy New Year!
 
With the first release of the year, we wanted to improve the overall setup and support experience with the ServiceNow ServiceGraph connector for Meraki.
 
This should help get your Meraki equipment imported into ServiceNow in no time. If problems do come up, new shortcuts and logs are provided to help resolve common issues.
 
In addition, this version is now certified for the Tokyo release of ServiceNow. 
 
 
Release Notes
 
  • Improved Guided Setup experience
  • New Administrative and Debugging menus to aid with setup and troubleshooting
  • The import job now supports pre/post scripts to adjust the CMDB sync process
  • Support for enhanced ServiceNow security requirements when receiving Meraki webhooks.
  • Bug fixes, improved error handling as well as compatibility updates for the ServiceNow Tokyo release

 

 

Highlights

 

An updated menu and dashboard to manage and monitor your Meraki equipment from ServiceNow

Incident generation allows you to capture Meraki alerts and associate the event with a device such as a wireless access point. 

 

The process for configuring this feature is best configured using the ServiceNow webhook template, included within the Meraki Dashboard. Read more about configuring this here

New menu containing logs and administrative shortcuts will help to quickly identify errors and access to core app settings.

Improved Error Logs to help understand common challenges with the integration.

 

Sometimes something is not quite right with the setup details and it wasn't always clear where the problem was or what some cryptic error message was saying. So, we've improved the overall logging experience by using human readable error messages with explanations as to what may have been wrong.

Advanced users now have the option to modify the import process.

 

We have moved the core logic of the app into its own script which is then imported into the scheduled job. This enables administrators to adjust any of the mapping logic before/after the import job is run.

How do you get any support on this connector?  I need someone to give my SNOW Dev instance access to this app.  This needs to be done from the creator of the app. Watch this video.

We have responded to your question @Chris_XCW, via the initial email you sent. Apologies for the delay.

I am able to see the Meraki application in my Dev instance now, thanks.  However, I am having an issue getting this one dependency installed. I can't find this dependency anywhere. Is it part of another app?
