Configuring Ceridian Dayforce REST Operations

[Prerequisites] [Initializing the connector]

Prerequisites

NOTE: For development purposes we can use test credentials provided by Dayforce. However, to understand the Dayforce API and the request responses handled by Dayforce it is recommended that you create a developer account. If you do not have a Dayforce account, go to https://developers.dayforce.com/Special-Pages/Registration.aspx and create a Dayforce developer account.

To use the Dayforce REST connector, add the element in your configuration before carrying out any other Dayforce REST operation.

Initializing the connector

Add the following

init

<ceridiandayforce.init>
        <username>{$ctx:username}</username>
        <password>{$ctx:ceredianPwd}</password>
        <clientNamespace>{$ctx:clientNamespace}</clientNamespace>
        <apiVersion>{$ctx:apiVersion}</apiVersion>
</ceridiandayforce.init>

Properties * username: The username of your Dayforce environment. For testing we can use the sample environment credential: DFWSTest * password: The password of your Dayforce environment. For testing we can use the sample environment credential: DFWSTest * clientNamespace: The namespace of your Dayforce environment. For testing we can use the sample environment: usconfigr57.dayforcehcm.com/Api/ddn * apiVersion: The version of the API you want to call. For testing we will set it to: V1

Now that you have connected to Dayforce, use the information in the following topics to perform various operations with the connector.
