What is ServiceNow Share?

I recently had the opportunity to be part of the initial ServiceNow Share program.  The ServiceNow Share program is a website where ServiceNow customers and partners can share custom applications, app extensions, dashboards, workflows, scripts and more. 

My Experience

When I first heard about the program, I had little to zero interest.   I mean already had this blog, were I can share any code I want.  Then I logged into the ServiceNow Share website.

Completely changed my mind in the first five minutes of browsing.  There are hundreds of customizations, and many great ideas in there.  I was inspired to participate.  In the next 24 hours, I submitted 20 items to ServiceNow Share.

In my opinion, here are some pros and cons of this exciting new program.

Pros of ServiceNow Share

  • Wild West of ideas. You have an idea for ServiceNow and want to share it with the world.  Go ahead.
  • Customizations pre-built.  Download the xml file and you are using the customization in minutes.

Cons of ServiceNow Share

  • Confidential Code.  People have to be careful about sharing confidential company code.
  • Lack of Testing. Some code might not work or be tested thoroughly

Conclusion

This is going to be great.  I am excited to see ServiceNow Share be released.
