Adding a 1E user account for 1E Service Catalog Connect

ServiceNow users that log in to the 1E Service Catalog Connect app will actually be interacting with 1E using a user account that is configured on the 1E Service Catalog Connect app's Settings page. This user retrieves, executes and approves instructions and fetches responses from 1E using API's and the 1E user.

To configure this 1E user follow the below steps:

  1. Login to Settings app using a 1E user account that has at least the Full Administrator role:

  2. Navigate to Permissions→Users and Groups.

  3. Click the Add button. The Add user popup window will open.

  4. In the Select AD user or security group field, type the name, or part of the name, for the AD user or security group that you want to add and click on search icon.

    1E will return a list of any matching users from AD.

  5. Select the one you want from the list, for example SerCatConnect.

  6. Once you have selected the user, click on Add button.

  7. Now that the user has been added, you have to assign role(s) to the user.

  8. To assign a role to the user, select the user on the Users and Groups page and click on Assignments link for the user or group you want to add the role to.

    This displays the Assignment page focused on the selected user.

  9. On the Assignments page, the focus is on Users and Groups.
