Prerequisites for performing top-down discovery using Service Mapping

Learn about credentials, users, and user permissions you must configure to let Service Mapping access and discover applications inside your organization private network.

Configure the relevant requirements to enable successful top-down discovery:
Host credentials
Service Mapping uses credentials of the hosts to access applications running on this host. Typically, host credentials are enough for top-down discovery. For example, to discover the HP Service Manager Application Server, configure only credentials for accessing the server hosting this application, SSH credentials, or Windows credentials.
Applicative credentials
To discover some applications, Service Mapping needs separate credentials from credentials of the host on which such applications run. This type of credentials is referred to in ServiceNow as applicative credentials. For example, to discover the ABAP SAP Central Services (ASCS), configure applicative credential in addition to the host credentials.
Elevated rights for Unix-based hosts
For Unix-based hosts, configure on MID Servers, you must provide a user with sudo-level credentials on all Unix-based hosts in your organization. For example, if the server hosting ASCS is Unix-based, provide a user with elevated rights to be able to run discovery commands against this Unix-based server.
SNMP community credentials
Configure SNMP community credentials to allow Service Mapping and Discovery to query network devices using the SNMP protocol. For example, configure SNMP community credentials for A10 Networks Thunder ADC.
Users or user permissions
You may need to provide additional users or user permissions to run certain commands or access certain directories. For example, for ASCS, provide a user with permissions to run SOAP on RFC read table function.

The Now Platform provides a centralized way of configuring credentials for Discovery, Service Mapping, and other applications. It allows you to configure credentials for hosts and applications only once. If you have already configured host-related credentials for another application, you do not need to do it again for Service Mapping.

You can assign credentials to specific MID Servers or keep credential generic so all MID Servers can use them. MID Servers retrieve commands and credentials from the ServiceNow instance and apply them to discover CIs inside organization private network.

Assigning credentials to the MID Server that uses them to access CIs
Use the following guidelines to decide for which MID Server to create credentials:
  • If all CIs, belonging to the same CI type, share a credential, you do not need to specify a MID Server for it. In that case, it is used on all MID Servers by default.
    Note: Specifying the MID Server when configuring credentials is optional.
  • If CIs of the same type and on the same network have different credentials, configure these credentials and define order in which Service Mapping uses them when trying to connect to these CIs.

In addition to generic credentials, you configure on MID Servers, you must configure sudo-level credentials on all Unix-based hosts in your organization.

If the MID Server does not have sufficient credentials to access a device or application, it can run Network Mapper (Nmap) commands to collect basic information without using credentials. Credential-less discovery with Nmap requires additional configuration as described in Install and uninstall Nmap on a MID Server.

Review the list of credentials necessary to discover hosts and applications supported in the base system.
