Desired State

Desired State performs scheduled or on-demand audits of CMDB data to determine which records match the expected attributes, CI relationships, and relationships to other records in the system.

For example, desired state can determine if a computer has a license for a particular software program. The compliance process checks configuration items (CI) to ensure that their attributes and relationships comply with standards set by your organization. Audit results show any discrepancies in a record's desired state, and ServiceNow automatically assigns follow-on tasks to qualified users who can remediate those discrepancies.
