ServiceNow: SOAP Journal

Integration using Web Services

Announcing ServiceNow::SOAP – a better Perl API

I am excited to announce the release on CPAN of ServiceNow::SOAP — a better Perl API for ServiceNow.

This module has the following features:

  • Support for both Direct and Scripted Web Services.
  • The Direct Web Services methods closely match ServiceNow’s published methods, allowing you to take advantage of all features documented in the ServiceNow wiki.
  • Easy to use methods for querying large tables.  These methods follow ServiceNow’s best practice recommendation, which is to call getKeys before calling getRecords.
  • Query performance can be improved by limiting the list of columns returned.
  • Support for insertMultiple.
  • Detailed POD documentation, with lots of examples.

If you are using Perl, please check out ServiceNow::SOAP here, and give me your feedback.

    How do you specify a proxy?

    If there is a proxy server, you must set the environment variables
    HTTP_PROXY=http://my.proxy.server
    PERL_LWP_ENV_PROXY=1

    This is described in more detail here:
