The following table describes the fields available on this page:
Tachyon User Name and Tachyon User Password
This is the domain user name and password of a Tachyon user that is assigned to an Actioners role in Tachyon. This user is a proxy for ServiceNow users that are assigned to the 1E ITSM Connect role x_1e_connect.Tachyon_User in order to run those instructions in Tachyon from ServiceNow, to verify the status of executed instructions, and collect responses from the instructions that have been run.
This user is also used by the API Configuration Settings page to retrieve instructions from Tachyon to make them available in ServiceNow.
|Tachyon Explorer URL||This setting is used to open the Tachyon Explorer page from the "Related Links" within an Incident. This does not affect the connectivity between ServiceNow and tachyon but rather points to the Explorer directly.|
This check box helps execute instructions with or without the need for approvals depending on customer preferences. ServiceNow will not ask for any approval if the checkbox is unchecked.
Tachyon keep answers minutes
|This setting is specific to Tachyon. The value is used when ServiceNow sends an instruction execution request to Tachyon and controls the number of minutes that Tachyon should keep the instruction responses active. The setting unit is minutes. This has a default value of 120 minutes with a valid range between 10 and 10080.|
Tachyon gather data minutes
This setting is specific to Tachyon. The value is used when ServiceNow sends an instruction execution request to Tachyon and controls the number of minutes that Tachyon should continuously gather an instruction's responses. The setting unit is minutes. This has a default value of 60 minutes with a valid range between 10 and 10080.
Instruction response keep days
This setting determines how many days ServiceNow stores the instruction responses received from Tachyon. An auto-clean-up mechanism deletes response data older than the specified number of days from ServiceNow.
Once deleted the response data is lost and can never be viewed or retrieved again. This has a default value of 5 days.
Instruction history keep months
This setting determines the number of months that ServiceNow preserves the instruction history data. Whenever a user executes an instruction its details get saved in the instruction history in form of transactions. An auto-clean-up mechanism deletes instruction history data older than the specified number of months from ServiceNow.
Once deleted the instruction history data is lost and can never be viewed or retrieved again. This has a default value of 3 months.
Status API wait seconds
This setting specifies the time duration in seconds that ServiceNow should wait between sending subsequent instruction status API requests. The same wait time is used in case of response API calls for collecting the responses of the triggered instructions. This has a default value of 3 seconds.
Response batch size
This setting specifies the number of result sets that are fetched from Tachyon in one call. Each time the user clicks the load more link a new call is made and the specified number of responses from Tachyon are stored in the ServiceNow table.
For example, if a user triggered an instruction with a batch size of 100 and the instruction is expected to bring 500 records in total from Tachyon, then the first response will be returned as soon as the first batch of 100 records are ready. When the ServiceNow user clicks the load more link then the next set of 100 responses will be loaded and so on.
|This setting specifies the default page size of Tachyon response table.|
Attached response file name prefix
This setting contains a text value that is used as the prefix for the name of an attached response excel file. The complete name of the attachment has additional concatenated parameters such as the incident number and time stamp.
The 1E ITSM connect app lets users choose to additionally receive the responses for a Tachyon triggered instruction as an attached excel file in the incident itself. As soon as the instruction's responses are visible on the screen, the attached responses appear just below the responses table.
Targeted device field name
This setting defines the name of the reference type field that will be used as the configuration item field on the incident page. The default value for this field is cmdb_ci, which corresponds to the configuration item field on the incident page.
Normally a 1E ITSM Connect incident uses a specific configuration Item, which is the computer name of a device. An organisation may instead want to track inventory details using any reference type field available on the incident page. This setting lets an organisation select any of the reference fields available on incident page as the CI field.
