Creating Org Units

We can use POST Org Units operation with required parameters to create a new org unit

GET Org Units

    <isValidateOnly>{$ctx:isValidateOnly}</isValidateOnly>
    <fieldAndValue>{$ctx:fieldAndValue}</fieldAndValue>
</ceridiandayforce.postOrgUnits>

Properties

  • isValidateOnly (Mandatory): When a TRUE value is used in this parameter, POST and PATCH operations validate the request without applying updates to the database.

Sample request

Following is a sample request that can be handled by this operation.
