As demand for ServiceNow expertise continues to grow, ServiceNow is enabling Now Platform® developers to work more efficiently by seamlessly integrating with the tools developers already know and love.

And today, we are excited to introduce another integration stemming from our strategic alliance with Microsoft. The ServiceNow extension for Microsoft Visual Studio Code allows developers to innovate on the Now Platform in the lightweight, extensible Visual Studio Code editor. To keep pace with the rapid speed of innovation, developers must be armed with the right tools that provide frictionless experiences and make work easier.

The ServiceNow extension for Microsoft Visual Studio Code will:

·      Support the development of multiple ServiceNow projects, such as packages, custom apps, stored apps and plug-ins, as well as offline development and sync back so that developers can work whenever and wherever they choose, without being connected to their instance all the time.

·      Enable advanced script editor features like IntelliSense and linting support, as well as JavaScript and HTML syntax validation, code-completion for Glide APIs, Jelly tags and attributes.

·      Support basic and OAuth authentication and allow for two-way synchronization of files between Visual Studio Code and instance and a unified diff tool for viewing differences.
