Getting Started

Before setting up the integration in your ServiceNow instance, there are a few prerequisite steps. 

  1. To get started with the CrowdStrike API, you’ll want to first define the API client and set its scope. Refer to this guide to getting access to the CrowdStrike API for setting up a new API client key. For the new API client, make sure the scope includes the following.
    • Detection – Read, Write
  2. Visit the ServiceNow Store to view more info on the integration as well as download a user guide. There are other guides available as well.

  3. Have an administrator of your instance install the Application(s).

Once the app is installed, enter the API information in the ‘Configurations’ section found by searching CrowdStrike in the Navigator. Configurations allow you to select several options such as incident creation and assignment groups.

 

How can customers use CrowdStrike event data within the ServiceNow interface?

Once you have installed and configured the ServiceNow integration, you will begin to receive a feed that will populate the “Detections” module within the CrowdStrike application. This allows you to view new threats at a glance.
