File preparation for a target transformation

File preparation for a target transformation

To write data to Workday, the source file must include the container with the processing options and the wrapper referential elements to perform the specified operation in Workday.
For information about the required business process parameters and the wrapper elements, see the request elements for the specified operation in the Workday web service directory. You need to prepare a file to include the wrapper elements along with the data that you want to update in Workday. You can add the processing options in an Expression transformation later when you write the data to Workday.
For example, to change the legal name for a worker in Workday, you need the following wrapper element data from Workday:
  • worker
  • country reference
  • worker reference
As the elements fall in three different groups, create three separate files to include the information from each of these groups. Add the files in a source transformation, and use the Joiner transformations to join data from multiple files to create one target file. Use the data from the target file to create the final source file. Include the legal name data that you want to update in Workday.
