A Workday connection is configured via the Workday connector to establish access to an account on the Workday server. Once a connection is established, you can configure one or more Workday activities associated with that connection to use as a source or target within an operation.
To connect with the Workday server, contact the Workday administrator for the required credentials.

To configure a new Workday connection, within the Connectors filter, click the Workday connector block:
To configure an existing Workday connection, within the Endpoints filter, double-click the Workday connection block:
This will open a configuration screen for the Workday connection, covered next.
