This guide will show you how to set up your new Helpdesk Buttons with Service Now in as few as 15 minutes.
ServiceNow integration requires two main parts:
1) set up an unregistered user as a catchall account as a contact in your PSA
2) configure helpdeskbuttons account.
1) Unregistered User¶
To start you will need to set up a contact that uses the email address of “email@example.com” for the purposes of catching any unregistered users.
Navigate to Callers and Click New
The only really important part is the email address. Feel free to name it anything you feel comfortable with.
Anti-Virus and AntiMalware¶
It is not always necessary, but we recommend whitelisting the tier2tickets installation folder (C:\Program Files(x86)\tier2tickets).

Webroot in particular can cause issues with screenshots.
