Right after that he started with the ServiceNow Incident to Azure DevOps Work Item integration setup, starting from 5:06.

And then he demonstrated how the integration works in the two connected systems (ServiceNow and Azure DevOps) from 13:02. He created a brand-new incident in ServiceNow and it was automatically logged in Azure DevOps as a work item.

While waiting for the polling time of 20 seconds, Yanko also showcased the troubleshooting section of ZigiOps, where you can see in details what is being extracted from the source system and what is being loaded in the target system, and how the overall data transfer happens. This greatly eases troubleshooting in case of any issues.

After that, from 14:24 he also showed some bi-directional updates, by adding comments and attachments to both  the ServiceNow incident and the Azure DevOps work item, and also changing the status. When there are changes in ServceNow, ZigiOps updates them in Azure DevOps immediately and vice versa.

After the integration was completed and tested, Yanko concluded the demo and opened the stage for questions, from 17:30.

We had a few great questions from our attendees. For example, about the entities that ZigiOps can sync between the two systems, the authorization methods that are used and what system versions are supported.

Lyubo, our R&D manager, gave really detailed and interesting answers, so if you'd like to watch the whole Q&A session, you can do it here.
