The core discovery patterns are not being utilized for discovery.
ServiceNow has shifted away from probes and sensors, focusing on using patterns instead.
Although probes and sensors are still used for the initial discovery interrogation (Shazaam), the CMDB population is handled by discovery patterns. Any future updates will be targeted on these patterns.
Starting in the ServiceNow New York release, migration steps can be shifted to discovery patterns. If your instance is earlier than New York, it will be necessary to upgrade your platform to New York or higher.
- Ensure your instance is on New York or higher.
- If on New York, a prerequisite script will need to be run first. Note that you must log on to access this script: KB0750351
- Ensure the requirements of the above script are met.
- Next, follow these instructions to perform the migration:
Remember to always run the script in lower environments and validate before running in your production instance.
