Configure listeners to push event information

You can configure listeners to push event information to theĀ instance or MID Server.

Event Management receives external events through an event collector or script. If you are using a script to collect events, no configuration is required. All other methods of collecting events require configuration. For more information, see Event collection via script.

After event collection configuration, Event Management can collect events that are sent directly to the instance, or via the MID Server, SNMP trap, or email.

Standard event form

All events must use a standard event form, regardless of how they arrive at the instance. For more information, see Event field format for event collection.

Event collection via MID Server

The MID Server facilitates communication and movement of data between external applications, data sources, services, and the ServiceNow instance.
