Accessing the Commvault Application for ServiceNow

Updated

You can launch the Commvault application from ServiceNow Navigator. The Commvault Web Console URL you enter to log on provides access to the associated Commvault deployment.

You can specify multiple Web Console URLs to provide access to different Commvault deployments.

Before You Begin

  • Configure a Management, Instrumentation, and Discovery Server (MID Server) by following the instructions in ServiceNow documentation pages for the ServiceNow release you are using. For example, you can use the MID Server installation (London) page to configure a MID Server for the London release.

  • The MID Server machine must have access to the Commvault Web Console.

  • Be prepared to enter the following information:

    • MID Server name. If you do not have the MID Server name, you can search for "MID Server" in the ServiceNow Navigator and get the name from the Servers list.

    • Commvault Web Console URL
