URL: Client URL: What is it mean? I have got only one one URL from servicenow team and used the same URL for both.When I tried to validate ,it says that validation failed.But with the same credentials, when I use the same URL in browser I am able to access it without any error.

The Service Desk Gateway (sdgtw) probe acts as a gateway between the CA Unified Infrastructure Management and service desk applications. The probe generates an incident ticket in the service desk that is based on the CA UIM alarm. CA Normalization Integration Management Service Management (CA NIM SM) is used to create a connection between CA UIM and the following service desk applications, through the webservices exposed by these applications:

BMC Remedy IT Service Management
CA Cloud Service Management
CA Service Desk Manager
HP Service Manager
Salesforce (SFDC) Service Cloud
SAP Solution Manager
