Whether you're worried about HIPAA compliance or basic data security and privacy, you may occasionally need to "redact" sensitive information from journal entries in a ticket. Simply deleting the journal record is not enough. This tool entirely wipes the sensitive data from your instance.
Dealing with time-zones in ServiceNow can be difficult, especially in your server-side code. This tool makes that much easier, even allowing you to convert the time in a GlideDateTime object from one time-zone to another, on the fly.
Temporary Permissions Util
Whether it's a vendor, a tester, or anyone else needing temporary enhanced permissions, TPU allows you to simply specify the group or role you want to associate with them, and the expiration date for those permissions. TPU will handle the rest.
Set Catalog Variables from URL
This tool allows you to link directly to a Catalog Item in the portal or classic UI, and specify some URI parameters in order to pre-populate that request on load. Great for use in Knowledge articles and support tickets!
