    Junos Space Service Now Modes

    Junos Space Service Now collects event and trending data (in the form of Juniper Message Bundles [JMBs]) from devices running Junos OS and submits the data to Juniper Support System (JSS) for troubleshooting and analysis. JSS identifies the Service Now application by the organization configured on it. An organization is configured on Service Now with a unique site ID and credentials (username and password) for the site ID. The site ID, username, and password are provided by Juniper Networks or a qualified Juniper Networks partner (when Service Now is operating in End Customer mode).

    Service Now periodically checks and collects JMBs from the managed devices and creates an incident for each JMB collected from the devices. A user can submit an incident manually or configure Service Now to submit an incident automatically to JSS for creating a case. A case is created in JSS and associated with the site ID of the organization configured on Service Now from which the incident was submitted.

    Depending on your contract with Juniper Networks, you can operate Service Now in Direct, End Customer, or Partner Proxy modes. Certain features are enabled or disabled depending on the mode of operation.

    • Demo mode–Service Now operates in Demo mode from the time you install Service Now on Junos Space Network Management Platform until you create an organization and validate the organization by establishing a connection with JSS or a Service Now partner.

      In Demo mode, you can add one organization and up to five devices, manage device inventory, install AI-Scripts on the devices, detect events on the devices, and view JMBs collected from the devices.

    • Offline mode–You can accept a Direct or Partner Proxy license file and activate the Junos Space Platform and Service Now application without having to connect to JSS. You can perform all Service Now tasks except submit incidents, create autosubmit policies, view exposures, or view cases in Case Manager. If Service Now is already in End Customer mode, you cannot operate it in Offline mode.
    • Direct mode–In Direct mode, you can add multiple Service Now organizations and devices in Service Now. Service Now is connected to JSS, which enables you to submit incidents to JSS and JSS to provide support for the incidents that you submit.

      Figure 1 shows Service Now operating in Direct mode.

    • Partner Proxy mode–A qualified Juniper Networks partner (also known as Service Now partner) can operate Service Now in Partner Proxy mode to manage multiple Service Now end customers (also known as connected members). The Service Now end customers submit incidents to the Service Now partner, who resolves the issues or submits the issues to JSS for resolution.

      You can configure multiple organizations and end customers and manage multiple devices in this mode.

    • End Customer mode–In End Customer mode, Service Now communicates with JSS through the Service Now partner. When events occur on the devices managed by an end customer, incidents are reported to the Service Now partner. The Service Now partner, if required, submits the incidents to JSS for resolution. The Service Now partner provides the required credentials to an end customer for configuring the Service Now organization.

      You can configure only one organization, but can manage multiple devices in this mode. Figure 2 shows Service Now operating in Partner Proxy and End Customer modes.
