Workday Prism Analytics Get Status Activity

Introduction

A Workday Prism Analytics Get Status activity, using its Workday Prism Analytics connection, retrieves the status of a specified table from Workday Prism Analytics, and is intended to be used as a source to provide data in an operation.

Create a Workday Prism Analytics Get Status Activity

An instance of a Workday Prism Analytics Get Status activity is created from a Workday Prism Analytics connection using its Get Status activity type.

To create an instance of a Workday Prism Analytics Get Status activity, drag the Get Status activity type to the design canvas or copy the Get Status activity type and paste it on the design canvas. For details, see Creating an Activity Instance in Component Reuse.

An existing Workday Prism Analytics Get Status activity can be edited from these locations:

Configure a Workday Prism Analytics Get Status Activity

Follow these steps to configure a Workday Prism Analytics Get Status activity:

Step 1: Enter a Name and Workday Prism Analytics Object

Workday Prism Analytics Get Status Activity Configuration Step 1

  • Name: Enter a name to identify the Workday Prism Analytics Get Status activity. The name must be unique for each Workday Prism Analytics Get Status activity and must not contain forward slashes (/) or colons (:).

  • Workday Prism Analytics wBucket: This section displays the Workday Prism Analytics wBuckets available in the Workday Prism Analytics endpoint. When reopening an existing activity configuration, only the selected Workday Prism Analytics wBucket is displayed instead of reloading the entire Workday Prism Analytics wBucket list.

    • Selected Workday Prism Analytics wBucket: After a Workday Prism Analytics wBucket is selected, it is listed here.

    • Search: Enter any column's value into the search box to filter the list of Workday Prism Analytics wBuckets. The search is not case-sensitive. If Workday Prism Analytics wBuckets are already displayed within the table, the table results are filtered in real time with each keystroke. To reload the list Workday Prism Analytics wBuckets from the endpoint when searching, enter search criteria and then refresh, as described below.

    • Refresh: Click the refresh icon Refresh icon or the word Refresh to reload the list of Workday Prism Analytics wBuckets from the Workday Prism Analytics endpoint. This may be useful if Workday Prism Analytics wBuckets have been added to Workday Prism Analytics. This action refreshes all metadata used to build the table of Workday Prism Analytics wBuckets displayed in the configuration.

    • Selecting A Workday Prism Analytics wBucket: Within the table, click anywhere on a row to select a Workday Prism Analytics wBucket. Only one Workday Prism Analytics wBucket can be selected. The information available for each Workday Prism Analytics wBucket is fetched from the Workday Prism Analytics endpoint:

      • Name: The Workday Prism Analytics wBucket name from Workday Prism Analytics.

    Tip

    If the table does not populate with available Workday Prism Analytics wBuckets, the Workday Prism Analytics connection may not be successful. Ensure you are connected by reopening the connection and retesting the credentials.

  • Save & Exit: If enabled, click to save the configuration for this step and close the activity configuration.

  • Next: Click to temporarily store the configuration for this step and continue to the next step. The configuration will not be saved until you click the Finished button on the last step.

  • Discard Changes: After making changes, click to close the configuration without saving changes made to any step. A message asks you to confirm that you want to discard changes.

Step 2: Review the Data Schema

Workday Prism Analytics Get Status Activity Configuration Step 2

  • Data Schema: The response data schema for Workday Prism Analytics is displayed. If the operation uses a transformation, the data schema is displayed again later during the transformation mapping process, where you can map to target fields using source objects, scripts, variables, custom values, and more.

    The Workday Prism Analytics connector uses the Workday Prism Analytics REST API v2.0 (login to the Workday Resource Center required). Refer to the API documentation for information on the schema fields.

    • Response:

      Response Schema Field/Node Notes
      json The format of the request schema
      getStatus_response Node of getStatus_response
      updatedBy Node of updatedBy
      fullName Full name of updater
      id Unique identifier of updater
      displayName Name of error
      errorMessage Error message
      errorCode Error code
      description Description of error
      source Node of the source
      href URL that represents the object
  • Refresh: Click the refresh icon Refresh icon or the word Refresh to regenerate schemas from the Workday Prism Analytics endpoint. This action also regenerates the schema in other locations throughout the project where the same schema is referenced, such as in an adjacent transformation.

  • Back: Click to temporarily store the configuration for this step and return to the previous step.

  • Finished: Click to save the configuration for all steps and close the activity configuration.

  • Discard Changes: After making changes, click to close the configuration without saving changes made to any step. A message asks you to confirm that you want to discard changes.

Next Steps

After configuring a Workday Prism Analytics Get Status activity, complete the configuration of the operation by adding and configuring other activities, transformations, or scripts as operation steps. You can also configure the operation settings, which include the ability to chain operations together that are in the same or different workflows.

Menu actions for an activity are accessible from the project pane and the design canvas. For details, see Activity Actions Menu in Connector Basics.

Workday Prism Analytics Get Status activities can be used as a source with these operation patterns:

Other patterns are not valid using Workday Prism Analytics Get Status activities. See the validation patterns on the Operation Validity page.

To use the activity with scripting functions, write the data to a temporary location and then use that temporary location in the scripting function.

When ready, deploy and run the operation and validate behavior by checking the operation logs.
