Search Users

Search for a user in ServiceNow and return the system ID of that user. You can use that user's system ID in other cards to assign them issues, read their information, or perform other tasks.


The input fields on this card are dynamically generated based on your ServiceNow instance. The input fields will include these default fields provided by ServiceNow (First name, Last name, Email, and so forth) as well as any custom fields you've added to your user table.
