Workday Dynamic Account

In this article

Overview

Use this Account type to connect Workday Snaps with data sources that use Workday Dynamic Accounts.

Prerequisites

  • Write permissions for the Project for which you are creating the Account.
  • Valid Username, Password, Tenant, Host and Version received from Workday for using the Account.

Host, Version and Tenant can be found out by following any of these simple steps:

  1. You can first contact your Workday Security Administrator or your Implementation Partner.
  2. If you have access to your Workday Customer Portal, you can get information from there
  3. If you have access to the Workday Community, you can access the Workday Data Centers page from where its three data centers are listed. (AshburnPortland and Dublin). You need Workday Community access for this.
  4. Another easy way of finding this is through a RAAS (Report As A Service)
    1. Create an Advanced Report that is Web Service Enabled.
    2. From the Related Actions for the Report, click on Web Services > View URLs.
    3. Copy the Workday XML URL. It contains the host-prefix, tenant name, user name and follows the syntax: 
      https://<host-prefix>.workday.com/ccx/service/customreport2/<tenant_name>/<username>/CR_RAAS_SNAPLOGIC_READ_DEMO.
  5. Latest Version can be found from the Public Workday Web Services (WWS).

Limitations and Known Issues

Removes support for Workday WSDL Account. Pipelines and Snaps using this account type must switch to either Workday Account or Workday Dynamic Account.

StableUpgraded with the latest SnapLogic Platform release.
4.20 Patch workday8817 Latest

Fixes the Workday Write Snap that ignores the Import Synchronized check box selection while importing object data. The Snap now:

  • Waits for the current import request to complete, whether successfully or with error, before initiating the next import request.
  • Provides accurate real-time status of the request to downstream Snaps.   

Existing Pipelines using this Snap may experience longer execution times due to the synchronous behavior. However, you no longer need to use an additional Snap to capture and pass on the request status to downstream Snaps.

Fixes the Workday Read Snap that fails to validate when configured in the New Form UI.
