History sets in ServiceNow identify which particular records from an audited table contain historical information. History set records only contain a recent subset of historical information (within the past 30 days of inactivity). The following fields will be visible to you in list view for history sets:

IDAn identifier for the record whose history is being recorded
TableThe audited table for the record whose history is being recorded
Load TimeThe amount of time it took to generate the history set

An Include history set option is available in both the bulk share form. Checking this option will share the history set data indicated in the table above for your selected table that you are bulk sharing.

For more information about ServiceNow history sets, see history sets and differences between audit and history sets.


(warning) First, you will need to follow the steps to get started with Replicator and create a bulk share.


To share history set data for a bulk share, follow these steps:

Log into your sharing ServiceNow instance and navigate to Perspectium > Replicator > Bulk Share or simply type and then click Bulk Share in the Filter Navigator on the upper left-hand side of the screen.

Click the timestamp next to the name of the bulk share you want to share history set data for.

Under the Additional Settings tab, check the Include history set box.

In the bottom left-hand corner of the form, click Update to save your changes.
