  • Network security groups

  • Network security rules

  • Resource groups

  • SQL databases

  • SQL servers

  • SQL virtual clusters

  • SQL virtual machines

  • Subscriptions

  • Tag values

  • Tags

  • Virtual machines

  • Virtual network subnets

  • Virtual networks

  • Zones

4. Click on the Fetch data button in the top right corner of the page.

5. Select a table to configure its columns, and navigate to Components. Although all Azure tables contain components, references can be created using column configurations. See the 'Create references' section below for a step-by-step guide on how to create references.

6. Select the Ardoq workspace to import the table into. You can either select an existing workspace or type a name to create a new one.

7. Configure the columns to map the values to the correct Ardoq concepts.

8. Click the Test Import button to get a summary of what the import result will be.

Ardoq ServiceNow test import

9. Finally, click the Import All button to execute the actual import.

Create references

A) Create a reference based on the Sys ID

Ardoq ServiceNow create a reference
  • Column type: To create a reference, select the Reference type.

  • Workspace: This is the workspace where the referenced component exists or will exist after import.

  • Type: This is the reference type, for instance, Uses, Implicit, etc.

  • Format: Select Custom ID to reference by the target components' sys_id field.

  • Field name: The name of the field on the target components which contains its sys_id.

B) Create a reference based on the component name

Ardoq ServiceNow create reference

Follow the same steps as above, only that for Format select Component path instead. This will create references based on the name of the targeted components.

How to add Ardoq "app" to your Tennant

1. Open console (powershell for Windows) and log in (should redirect to the browser)

> az login

2. Create service principal for Ardoq application (app/client ID) and remember output (principal object ID):

> az ad sp create --id d5b22d16-feeb-447d-a3ee-32b0dae7f29a

> ee75834e-756b-4df5-a961-8b636fff598b

3. Assign role (for example Reader=acdd72a7-3385-48ef-bd42-f606fba81ae7) for the service principal:

> az role assignment create --assignee-object-id ee75834e-756b-4df5-a961-8b636fff598b --role acdd72a7-3385-48ef-bd42-f606fba81ae7
