You can connect ServiceNow with Prism Platform. The integration enables you to raise tickets for ServiceNow straight from the platform.

Prism supports the ServiceNow Cloud – IT Service Management – Incidents and utilises the ServiceNow Cloud API.

This is a bidirectional integration, which ensures that data in both ServiceNow and Prism remains synchronised. Once an issue is moved a ‘Done’ or ‘Resolved’ status in ServiceNow, Prism will automatically mark the issue as remediated in Prism Platform. So there is no need to update the status of issues in two places.

In this article you can find the following information:

  1. Set Up
  2. Export Issues to ServiceNow
  3. ServiceNow Issue Status
  4. Regress Issues

Regress Issues

You can regress items via ServiceNow if the vulnerability status is ‘unverified remediation’.

This means, if issues have been marked as ‘done/resolved’ within ServiceNow by accident, they can be moved back to ‘in progress’, and Prism will be updated.

When a ticked is closed or reopened in ServiceNow, a comment is added to Prism’s respective vulnerability, so you are able to track for auditing and remediation purposes. For example, the comment will refer to the issue being set as remediated via ServiceNow.
