Test the Setup of the Bomgar and ServiceNow Basic Integration

Test Session Key Generation

Session Key Generated

  1. Log into the Bomgar representative console, and then log into ServiceNow with the same account. If Bomgar and ServiceNow use different authentication systems, manually assign your Bomgar user to your ServiceNow user as described in Configure Bomgar Username and Authentication.
  2. Open a closed incident in ServiceNow, open a resolved incident, and make sure the Bomgar Session Key button does not appear for either of them.
  3. Open a test incident in ServiceNow. Confirm the State field matches one of the values for which the Bomgar Session Key button should appear, and make sure the button appears as expected. Remember that the incident must be saved before the button will appear.
  4. Under Bomgar > Integration > Properties, click the Bomgar Session Key button. This launches the Bomgar representative console, subsequently opening the Session Key dialog box.

Test Bomgar Session Import

Bomgar Session Import

  1. Log into ServiceNow as an ITIL user or an admin.
  2. Use the Bomgar Session Key button as described above to start a Bomgar session.
  3. End the session from the representative console and close any surveys and/or session end messages on the representative and/or customer sides of the session.
  4. Give the scheduled job you created earlier enough time to run, and then refresh the ServiceNow incident from which the session key was generated, scroll to the bottom of the page, and check the Bomgar Sessions list. There should be an entry for the recent session. If not, make sure the following are true:
    1. The API User Connection test works correctly as described above.
    2. There are no Bomgar errors reported for your ServiceNow instance in the Bomgar Outbound Events list. Your Bomgar admin can check this in Bomgar from the /login web interface under Management > Outbound Events.
