What is ServiceNow Workflow?


I believe we all have heard about processes in ServiceNow applications such as incident management, problem management, knowledge management, agile development, portfolio management etc. 

But how all these processes get implemented or automated into ServiceNow applications.

So, here comes workflow servicenow into picture and answer is a Workflow. So, the Workflow is the sequence of activities which is used to automate the processes in applications.

For example:  We all know about SLA attached to incident record. So, when we work on incident then SLA status gets automatically changed on specific interval of time along with other SLA values. From this example, I want to say that a specific SLA is created and attached for SLA end to end cycle. 

In below video it is practically demonstrate that how to create SLA and how to apply SLA.

example: Same as for approval attached in change incident, service request etc. A specific workflow related to approver and approval activities, a specific SLA is running.

There are lots of example. Which say when we have to automate the process or wants that each step runs automatically other then of manual intervention, then we create SLA for the same.

So, now the questions come that how to create workflow in servicenow.
