ServiceNow has DevOps integrations with continuous Improvement (CI)  toolsets Azure, GitHub, Jenkins and Gitlab


As the world collectively evaluates the return to work and shift to remote operations, digitally transformed enterprises are coming out faring better in this transition. This shift is aided by the work developers are putting in to create applications that better their organizations, and they need to continually adopt modern DevOps best practices to increase application delivery velocity and quality in order to stay nimble. 

ServiceNow recently engaged developers by inquiring how we could make their experience developing on the Now Platform® even better. Their response? They requested more integrations so that they can work within their preferred DevOps tools. That’s why, as part of our ongoing commitment to further improve the ServiceNow developer experience for the broader developer ecosystem, I’m excited to announce four new external DevOps integrations with market-leading Continuous Improvement/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) toolsets. These four new integrations help IT developers accelerate CI/CD pipeline configuration when building applications on the Now Platform, allowing them to set up pipelines in their favorite developer tools.   

The four new CI/CD integrations include: 

The source control innovations started with our New York release and CI/CD capabilities via APIs from our Orlando release. These out-of-the-box integrations provide templates for ServiceNow CI/CD pipeline automation and respective CI/CD tooling. As a result, developers using our CI/CD APIs no longer need to build custom API wrappers from scratch. These integrations between third-party CI/CD toolsets and the Now Platform are offered and supported directly by ServiceNow.
 

Giving developers a choice to manage CI/CD quote


With these new integrations, we are giving developers a choice to either manage CI/CD within or outside of the Now Platform. If developers are using our platform natively for CI/CD, the CI/CD Spoke is available for developers to build automated pipelines in Flow Designer for testing and deploying Now Platform applications. 

 The four new integrations encourage adoption of DevOps practices when developing on ServiceNow, using scoped and global applications by reducing the time and effort to set up CI/CD pipelines. And they meet the requirements of mature DevOps practitioners who want development on ServiceNow to look and work just like development on anything else at their company.  

Three of the four integrations are available today.  Our GitHub actions will be available in November on the GitHub Marketplace. Learn more about how to develop apps at scale with CI/CD toolsets on the Now Platform.
