### Example


from servicenow import ServiceNow
from servicenow import Connection

# Connect using default api method (JSON)
conn = Connection.Auth(username='edsu', password='bele', instance='servicenowsubdomain')

# For Dublin+ instances, connect using JSONv2
# conn = Connection.Auth(username='edsu', password='bele', instance='servicenowsubdomain', api='JSONv2')

# For SOAP connection
# from servicenow.drivers import SOAP
# conn = SOAP.Auth(username='edsu', password='bele', instance='servicenowsubdomain')
# SOAP support more than 250 results, example
# Get the changes updated on the last 30 minutes, Display values instead of sys_ids and change response limit to 10k
# chg.last_updated(minutes=30, params={'displayvalue': 'true'}, extended={'__limit': 10000}):

inc = ServiceNow.Incident(conn)
srv = ServiceNow.Server(conn)
grp = ServiceNow.Group(conn)
chg = ServiceNow.Change(conn)
tkt = ServiceNow.Ticket(conn)

# Custom table
custom = ServiceNow.Base(conn)
custom.__table__ = ""

machine = srv.fetch_one({'name': 'machine0001'})
print machine

inc = inc.fetch_one({'number': 'INC123456'})
print inc

group = grp.fetch_one({'name': 'MY-Team'})
print group

changes = chg.fetch_all({'cmdb_ci': machine['sys_id'], 'review_status': 3})
print changes

# Fetch changes updated on the last 60 minutes
changes = chg.last_updated(minutes=60)
print changes

# list only sys_ids
changes = chg.list({'cmdb_ci': machine['sys_id'], 'review_status': 3})
print changes

ticket = tkt.fetch_one({'number': 'TICKET0185412'})
print ticket

# Creating a new ticket based on another one
del ticket["number"]
new_ticket = tkt.create(ticket)
print ticket
