Creating a shared queue is the first required step in setting up your Perspectium DataSync integration. The shared queue(s) you create within ServiceNow will enable the sharing of data to Perspectium-supported endpoints or data stores. After creating your shared queue(s), you can then choose to share your ServiceNow instance data via a dynamic share, bulk share, or scheduled bulk share. Alternatively, for a quick and simple approach, you can create dynamic and bulk shares with the Perspectium Ready to Run feature.


(warning) First, you will need to install DataSync for ServiceNow and run the Perspectium Finish Install scripts.

(warning) You will also need to set your initial Perspectium & Replicator properties.


To create a shared queue, follow these steps:

Navigate to Shared Queues

Log into ServiceNow and navigate to Perspectium > Replicator > Shared Queues or simply type and then click Shared Queues in the Filter Navigator on the upper left-hand side of the screen.

Click New

At the top of the form, click New.

Choosing a queue name

Queue names are created by selecting a Queue Type and Queue Name.

First choose a queue type from the dropdown. Each type will automatically prepend a queue prefix to your queue name. See the table below.

TypeDescriptionQueue Prefix
CustomFor sending records with a custom queue name 


ReplicatorFor sending records to a DataSync Agentpsp.out.replicator.<agent_name>
SalesforceFor sending records to a SFDC orgpsp.out.salesforce.<org_name>
Service GatewayFor sending records with Service Gateway using<meshlet_name>


For sending records to another ServiceNow instancepsp.out.servicenow.<instance_name>
SIAMFor sending records to a SIAM<integration_name>

Then type a name into the Queue Name field. The value entered will be appended to the queue prefix determined by the Queue Type.

For example for a queue that will share data to your ServiceNow instance named dev12345, you would select "ServiceNow" from Queue Type and type "dev12345" in the Queue Name field. This will result in shared queue being named "psp.out.servicenow.dev12345".

Your default Endpoint URL is the URL for your Perspectium Integration Mesh that was entered when setting up your Perspectium Properties.

Enter your Perspectium Mesh (MBS) login info

Type your Perspectium Mesh (MBS) username and password in the Queue user and Queue user password fields.

In the Record Encryption Key field, you have the option to type an encryption key. If no encryption key is entered here, your shared data will be encrypted with the encryption key you created when you set your Replicator properties. Your record encryption key must be 24+ characters in length to enable TripleDES or AES-128 encryption. To enable AES-256 encryption, your record encryption key must be 32+ characters. You can select an encryption cipher when you create a dynamic share or create a bulk share.

(Optional) Enter an encryption key 

If you want to use a custom key instead of the Properties encryption key, type an encryption key with the minimum of 24 characters. See Encryption for the character length requirements for the encryption methods.  

(info) NOTE: When changing the encryption key in the shared / subscribe queue or properties, remove the preexisting key and add the new key. 

(Optional) Select an Encryption Mode

Specify how data is encrypted before being shared (available with the Gold Hotfix 10 release).

DefaultUses the Encryption Mode selected from the Properties page
encryptedData is encrypted and Base64 encoded
encrypted_multibyteData is Base64 encoded before encrypting 

See Encryption Mode for more information.

Make your shared queue active

Select Share from the Direction dropdown and check the Active box to activate the shared queue. To check the status for your shared queue, click the Get Queue Status link under Related Links at the bottom left-hand corner of the form. Information about the queue status will be displayed in the Status field. When you are ready to save your newly created shared queue, click Submit at the bottom left-hand corner of the form.

(info) NOTE: You can optionally check the Load Test box to create a Duration field for any bulk shares you have created that share to this shared queue. Before running a bulk share that will share to this shared queue, check the Duration field to confirm approximately how much time will elapse before your bulk share data reaches your Perspectium Mesh (MBS) server.
