Workday Connector Reference

Use Workday as a data source or data target. Some details of how to work with data in a flow are specific to the data source or data target, and to the specific trigger or actions you choose.

Connections

To connect to a system, whether it is a source of data or the target where you are sending data, you must create a connection with that system’s required credentials. You typically connect to different systems within a flow and can reuse each connection every time you need to connect.

This system requires the following credential information for its connections:

Connection Name

Enter a connection name that will help you remember the details of this connection. You can reuse connections multiple times in a single flow, and in more than one flow, and the credentials are hidden after you create the connection. Therefore, it’s helpful to provide a name that easily identifies this connection from others.

Only you can see the connection. Other users in your Composer app must create their own connections.

Tenant Name

The name or ID of your Workday tenant

For example, if the URL where you log into Workday is na.workday.com/wday/authgwy/global-modern/, then your tenant name is global-modern.

User Name

The username that you use to log in to Workday.

For Composer to successfully authenticate a Workday user account, the Workday user requires full user roles. Composer does not authenticate API User roles.

Password

The password that you use to log in to Workday.
