The ServiceNow Ruby library provides convenient access to the ServiceNow REST API. The library is structured such that it can be used to manage multiple ServiceNow tenants.
Note: Not all API endpoints are implemented and more continue to be added as time permits.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install servicenow-ruby
To create a client for a ServiceNow instance using OAuth:
client = ServiceNow.authenticate( "myhost.service-now.com", "client_id", "client_secret", "username", "password" ) # get all incidents client.incidents.all()
API methods are organized in the client based on the record type. For example, methods for creating/modifying/deleting incidents can be accessed through the
# get all incidents client.incidents.all() # create a new incident client.incidents.create( short_description: "My First Incident", description: "This incident is the best incident because..." )
Any table can be accessed using the
tables() method of the client. Simply specify the table name and you can interact with the table through the ServiceNow Tables API methods.
# get a reference to the table mytable = client.tables("my_table") # get all the table rows mytable.all()
Filtering, Sorting, Paging
