Workday Mass Ingestion connection properties

Workday Mass Ingestion connection properties

When you set up a Workday Mass Ingestion connection, you must configure the connection properties.
The properties of a Workday Mass Ingestion connection vary based on the authentication method that you specify for the connection. When you create a connection, you can select one of the following authentication methods:
  • Basic
    : Authenticates the connection by validating the login credentials of the Workday account.
  • OAuth 2.0 Refresh Token Flow
    : Authenticates the connection by using an application that is registered in Workday. To use this method, you must register an application in Workday and then specify the client ID and client secret of the application in the connection properties. For more information about registering an application in Workday, see the Workday documentation.

Connection properties for Basic authentication

The following table describes the connection properties for a Workday Mass Ingestion connection configured with Basic authentication:
Connection property
Description
Runtime Environment
Name of the runtime environment where you want to run the ingestion tasks.
You must specify a Secure Agent as the runtime environment.
You cannot run
application ingestion
tasks on a Hosted Agent or serverless runtime environment.
Domain Name
Name of the Workday domain that contains the resources that you want to access.
Tenant Name
Identifier of the Workday tenant that you want to access.
Version
Web Service Description Language (WSDL) version for the endpoints that the connection must use to retrieve Workday data. The list of operations supported for a web service depends on the WSDL version that you specify in this field.
Informatica recommends that you use WSDL v37.0 because Workday Mass Ingestion connections might not read data from the services that are not part of WSDL v37.0.
For more information on the WSDL versions, see the Workday Web Services (WWS) documentation.
User Name
User name of the Workday account.
Password
Password for the Workday account.
If you configure a connection with the Basic authentication method and then test the connection, the test is always successful even if the connection property values that you specified are incorrect. Therefore, ensure that you specify correct values for the connection properties before you save the connection.
