Instance sync has been created to solve one very basic problem of many customers who want to move data between multiple instances of ServiceNow easily, without creating dependency on system cloning. The core driving principle behind the design of Instance Sync is the simplicity to use it.Instance Sync does the magic of synchronizing the data and the user has minimalistic engagement. The complexity is hidden from the administrator through its minimalistic UI/ UX and gives the administrator the flexibility to move, replicate the data between two instances. If you have a vendor instance or a subsidiary instance or two or more production instances on ServiceNow then Instance Sync can also be used to sync the data between the instances.A common use case would be, if your vendor manages your CMDB on their own instance on ServiceNow or you manage your data on another production instance then Instance Sync can help synchronize between the instances.
System clone is a much heavier exercise to sync instances, whereas instance sync is light and quick on the job. With Cloning one has to wait for the entire sync to get completed whereas with Instance Sync one can carry out the background tasks as usual.
System clone is not an easy task as pre clone and post clone activities are time consuming. Coordination with the development teams and stakeholders to take backup also results in inefficient & time-consuming process. By using Instance sync you are freeing up the Support Resource to do more better work rather than painful exercise of syncing data every now and then between instances. With Instance Sync there are no more working weekends, you can schedule only the data that you desire.
Instance sync is our Magic potion for instant data replication from Source to Destination Instance on ServiceNow while you sit back and enjoy your coffee!
Source instance is tested and saved here.Here we prep things up before syncing your Source and Destination instances.
You can configure multiple tables to be synchronized in one go by add
to queue. Add single or multiple data sets to be synchronized
Schedule the Sync at a day and time convenient to you like-
daily, weekly, monthly etc.
It can also do recurring data sync when configured which is not
possible with system clone. View all your past sync records and
