Components created with new service categories

When you publish a new service category using the Service Creator application, the ServiceNow system creates components for the services in that category.

These components are distinct from the components installed with the Service Creator application. The following components are added for each new service category:

Table 1. Tables Created with New Service Categories
Name Description
<Department Name> Tasks [<service category table name>] The table that stores request task records for the service category. This table extends the Task table. The name of this table is defined by the department the service category is associated with, and the Table name field on the service category record. A new application menu and modules are created to allow users to access records on this table. Records on this table are numbered using a new Numbers [sys_numbers] record.
Table 2. User Roles Created with New Service Categories
Role Description
<service category table name>_user The user role required to access request records for a service category. The Table name for the service category determines the name of the role. Users designated as the manager, editors, or service fulfillers for a service category automatically receive this role. Only users with this role can be assigned task records for the service category. ACLs are created to allow users with this role to access the relevant service task table.
Table 3. Email Notifications Created with New Service Categories
