Jitterbit Harmony Workday Connector


The Jitterbit Harmony Workday Connector is accessed from the Connectivity tab of the design component palette:

Connectivity tab

This connector is used to first configure a Workday connection, establishing access to an account on the Workday server, and then used to configure one or more Workday activities associated with that connection as either a source or target within an operation.

Activities are organized based on the operations provided by the Workday Web Services (WWS) API, versions 32.0, 32.1, 32.2, 33.0, 33.1, 33.2, 34.0, 34.1, 34.2, 35.0, 35.1, 35.2, 36.0, 36.1, or 36.2.

These are the activities available for the Workday connector:

  • Add
  • Adjust
  • Assign
  • Cancel
  • Change
  • Close
  • Contract
  • Create
  • Edit
  • Enter
  • Get
  • Import
  • Manage
  • Put
  • Remove
  • Request
  • Set
  • Submit
  • Other

The operations of each web service are categorized under these activities on the basis of the starting token of the operation. Examples:

Operations that aren't covered by the above categorization (operations whose starting token is not listed above) such as the Start_International_Assignment or the Switch_Primary_Job operations, from the Staffing web service, are available in the Other activity.


Verbose logging can be enabled for this connector when it is used with a Private Agent. See Verbose Logging for Connectors for details.

Invoke verbose logging for this connector using this configuration entry:

<logger name="org.jitterbit.connector.verbose.logging.workday" level="DEBUG"/>


In this documentation, only a generic Workday activity is documented, as each activity has a similar design.

  • Workday activity: A Workday activity retrieves data from and/or sends data to a selected Workday web service and is used as a source or target in an operation.

The Workday connector uses the Workday Web Services (WWS) API, versions 32.0, 32.1, 32.2, 33.0, 33.1, 33.2, 34.0, 34.1, 34.2, 35.0, 35.1, 35.2, 36.0, 36.1, or 36.2.

Refer to the API documentation for information on the schema fields.

The Workday connector requires the use of an agent version 10.1 or later.

Together, a specific Workday connection and its activities are referred to as a Workday endpoint. Once a connection is configured, activities associated with the endpoint are available from the Endpoints filter:

Workday Registration

To connect with the Workday server, contact the Workday administrator for the required credentials. You will need:
