ServiceNow Introduction

Welcome to the ServiceNow User Manual

ServiceNow was initially used by IT Services. As part of the Client Relationship Management project, support provided by other platforms is being transitioned into ServiceNow under a centralized UC San Diego Service & Support Portal.

Our partner organizations are accessible from or from their custom urls:

All active AD users at UC San Diego are able to log into and access the Self-Service Portal. From there they can search the general Knowledge Base or submit cases to various on campus help desks. To gain access to the agent (internal) view and work tickets, one needs to be a member of an agent group.
