Hello World widgets

The Hello World widgets are included with Service Portal as examples of how to use and create widgets.

All three Hello World widgets display the same way. The real difference between them is in their underlying code base. Each version of the widget uses a different method of using the server and client script.

To view the Hello World widgets, navigate to Service Portal > Service Portal Configuration then click Widget Editor. In the Widget Editor, click Check out the Hello World Example.
