Creating a Live Feed Homepage Widget

ServiceNow Live Feed is a great new functionality that provides a place to post and share content in a ServiceNow instance. This content forms a searchable knowledge source for sharing information within an organization. I’ve had a request recently to make this feature accessible from a user homepage. This article explains how you can easily create a Live Feed homepage widget.
Live Feed Homepage Widget

The first thing you’ll need to do is make sure that you’ve got the live feed plugin enabled in your instance. Once you’ve done that, just follow the steps below…

1Create a UI page containing the live feed in an iFrame

‘render_gadget_livefeed’ UI page
Name: render_gadget_livefeed

<iframe id="feedframe" style="height: 320px; width: 100%;" src="" frameborder="0" scrolling="yes"></iframe>


2Follow the instructions here to add your UI page to a widget, and add your widget to a homepage.
