You must create Workday accounts to connect to Workday data sources that you want to use in your Pipelines.  See Accounts to learn more about SnapLogic Accounts.

Workday WSDL Account type is removed

Snaps in Workday Snap Pack do not support Workday WSDL account type anymore. Update all existing Pipelines and Snaps to use one of the account types listed below.

Snaps in the Workday Snap Pack work with different accounts and protocols per the following table.

Configuring Workday Accounts

You can configure your Workday accounts in SnapLogic using either the Designer or Manager.

Using SnapLogic Designer

Drag a Workday Snap to the Canvas, then click the Snap to open the Settings dialog. Click the Account tab. You can now either use an existing account or create a new one.

Selecting an existing account

SnapLogic organizes and displays all accounts to which you have access, sorting them by account type and location. To select an existing account:

  1. Click  to view the accounts to which you have access and select the account that you want to use. 
  2. Click  to save the Account settings.

Creating an account

  1. Click Add Account in the Account Reference dialog.
  2. Select the Location in which you want to create the account, then select the account type, and click ContinueThe Add Account dialog associated with the account type appears.

  3. Enter the required account details. For detailed guidance on how to provide information associated with each account type, use the following links:

    Enter additional information on this account in the Notes field of the Info tab. This information may help other users, especially if there are already multiple accounts of the same type.

  4. Click Validate to verify the account.
  5. Click Apply to complete configuring the Workday account.

Using SnapLogic Manager

Use Manager to create accounts without associating them immediately with Pipelines.

Accounts in SnapLogic are associated with projects. You can use accounts created in other projects only if you have at least Read access to them.

  1. In the left pane, browse to the project in which you want to create the account and click CreateAccount Workday, followed by the appropriate account type.

    The Create Account dialog associated with the selected account type appears. 
  2. Repeat the steps 3 through 5 listed in the Creating an account section, to set up the account.

Avoid updating account credentials when Pipelines associated with that account are executing. Doing so may lead to unexpected results, including locking your account.
