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

Properties

  • xRefCode (Mandatory): The unique identifier (external reference code) of the employee whose data will be retrieved. The value provided must be the exact match for an employee; otherwise, a bad request (400) error will be returned.
  • 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 configuration

Following example illustrates how to connect to Dayforce with the init operation and query operation.

1.Create a sample proxy as below :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<proxy xmlns="http://ws.apache.org/ns/synapse"
       name="query"
       startOnLoad="true"
       statistics="disable"
       trace="disable"
       transports="http,https">
   <target>
      <inSequence>
         <log level="full" separator=","/>
         <property expression="json-eval($.username)" name="username"/>
         <property expression="json-eval($.password)" name="password"/>
         <property expression="json-eval($.clientNamespace)" name="clientNamespace"/>
         <property expression="json-eval($.apiVersion)" name="apiVersion"/>
         <property expression="json-eval($.isValidateOnly)" name="isValidateOnly"/>
         <property expression="json-eval($.fieldAndValue)" name="fieldAndValue"/>
         <property expression="json-eval($.xRefCode)" name="xRefCode"/>
         <ceridiandayforce.init>
            <username>{$ctx:username}</username>
            <password>{$ctx:password}</password>
            <clientNamespace>{$ctx:clientNamespace}</clientNamespace>
            <apiVersion>{$ctx:apiVersion}</apiVersion>

         <send/>
      </inSequence>
   </target>
   <description/>
</proxy>

2.Create a json file named query.json and copy the configurations given below to it:

                "LongName": "Denmark"
            }
        }
}
3.Replace the credentials with your values.
