(Q) If the ServiceNow account expires without any activity between 30-60 days, it will be more useful to me to just create a new account when required. What is the periodicity for ServiceNow activity before the account is deleted? (A) Accounts are not deleted; they are disabled after 35 days of inactivity. Users will be able to self-service and reactivate their disabled accounts by answering a few questions for authentication. In addition, CAC card users will be able to register their CACs in ServiceNow and accounts will not be disabled unless their CAC card expires. Non-CAC users will have to log in every 35 days to ensure their accounts remain active. Email alerts will be enabled to notify users before accounts are disabled, giving them the opportunity to log in and keep their accounts active.
