1 Overview

Available with the Spring 2010 Stable 2 release, the Tiny URL Support Plugin enables support for generating shortened URLs. Internal URLs are shortened automatically to not exceed the 2083 character Microsoft limit. For information on how URLs are structured in the ServiceNow platform, see URL Components.

Tiny URL Support Plugin is activated automatically for all new ServiceNow instances but is not enabled. Enable this plugin if Microsoft Internet Explorer displays failure to open page errors during routine operations in the ServiceNow platform.
