       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($.xRefCode)" name="xRefCode"/>
         <ceridiandayforce.init>
            <username>{$ctx:username}</username>
            <password>{$ctx:password}</password>
            <clientNamespace>{$ctx:clientNamespace}</clientNamespace>
