This is an overview of domain separation and Coaching. Domain
separation enables you to separate data, processes, and administrative tasks into logical
groupings called domains. You can then control several aspects of this separation, including
which users can see and access data.

Domain separation is
supported in this application. Not all ServiceNow applications support domain
separation; some include limitations on the data and administrative settings that can be
domain separated. To learn more, see Application support for domain
All tables including Coaching Opportunity, Coaching Assessment, Virtual Coach, and
Recommendations support domain separation so the coach and Coaching admin can view records
within the (tenant) domain to which they belong.
How domain separation works in Coaching
Domain separation is supported in Coaching with no setup or configuration required. Coaching opportunities and coaching assessments can
be created in separate domains, including the global domain.
Coaching assessments extend the platform Task [task] table.
When domain separation is implemented, coach and trainee users can view coaching assessments
and recommendations only in the domain assigned. Domain and
Domain Path columns are available for coaching opportunities,
coaching assessments, virtual coachings, and recommendations provided with the base system.

- A Coaching admin that belongs to a parent domain creates a coaching opportunity at a
parent domain level, or at a child domain level. Coaching opportunities created at a
parent level are available to view in all domains.
- A Coaching admin has access to multiple domains, but wants to update content in a record
within a specific domain. The domain specified in the record drives the functionality of
that record and reference fields.
- A Coaching user that belongs to the Acme domain can view the coaching assessment task
created in the Acme domain.
- A Coaching user wants to associate a learning recommendation for an integrated
application in the Acme domain. A Coaching user must belong to the domain of the
integrated application from which a record is associated.
- The trainee user of a parent domain can view a coaching assessment of the parent as well
as of all child domains of that parent. A trainee user must belong to the Acme domain, its
parent domain, or the global domain to view that coaching assessment.
