Before you write an adapter request
Remember the following points:
Special characters used in a text field are wrapped in the CDATA tag.
- When executing a sample request from this documentation, you must ensure that the supporting data is present in the ServiceNow application.
- If a large number of records is associated with the query, the execution of the request might take some time.
- The ServiceNow application has imposed a limit of 250 records that can be retrieved at any time in a single query. Therefore, when writing a request, you must ensure that your query does not return more than 250 records.
- A response can contain tags that may not be visible in the application.
