Flow Designer is a Now Platform feature for automating processes in a single design environment. Flow Designer lets process owners use natural language to automate approvals, tasks, notifications, and record operations without coding. You can expand Flow Designer to communicate with external instances and third-party systems by requesting a separate subscription to IntegrationHub.
IntegrationHub enables execution of third-party APIs as a part of a flow when a specific event occurs in ServiceNow. These integrations, referred to as spokes, are easy to configure and enable you to quickly add powerful actions without the need to write a script.
An action step, or step, is a single reusable operation within an action and can be used as part of a flow. Some of the steps can use the MID server. SSH step and PowerShell step are examples of steps which use a MID server. This knowledge base article provides information regarding action steps which use the MID server that may be helpful for troubleshooting.
Note: sys_flow_context is the table where the flow contexts are found.
Note: The term "Flow" in this section refers to the flow of data between the instance and the MID server when a step uses a mid server, not a flow designer flow.
It may be necessary to review the process plan when troubleshooting. To collect the process plan:
Note: If troubleshooting MID server issues the first method would better emulate what the MID server is doing. However the second method could be used to analyze the process plan and also compare to what is returned on the MID server.
