About Kissflow's ServiceNow integration

Kissflow Integration's ServiceNow connector lets you connect ServiceNow instantly with Kissflow apps and other popular third-party applications. It allows you to share data out of ServiceNow to build powerful workflows securely. It would be best to sign into a valid ServiceNow developer account and be a Kissflow paid customer to integrate with ServiceNow. You can use the ServiceNow connector to receive data from other flows or apps to perform specific ServiceNow actions and search actions. For the time being, the ServiceNow connector does not support any trigger events.
