Message table

The Message [sys_ui_message] table contains the translations for informational messages, confirmation messages, error messages, and other types of system messages.

ServiceNow checks this table for translated text when a client script contains a getMessage call or a server script contains a gs.getMessage call. The main fields for this table are:
  • Application: name of the application this message appears in.
  • Key: internal unique identifier of this message.
  • Language: language the message is translated into.
  • Message: translated text that users see.
