Before embarking on this task, i wanted to check if anyone has done this before in Python 3.x environment? Thanks!

Yes, we create solutions like this for many of our SNow customers. You could also do this from the SNow side and put it on a schedule to check regularly and reset those that are disabled.

Thanks for the reply. I shall explore Pdpyras, and other possible ways to interact with the API.

Let me know if anyone has any questions and thank you again to support!


Keep in mind that Webhook v3 will be slightly different with its subscription approach and uses different APIs.
