Workday - Design Center Configuration - Mule 4

Anypoint Design Center’s Flow Designer enables you to create apps visually. To use Flow Designer, work with your Anypoint Platform administrator to ensure that you have a Design environment. For more information, see the Flow Designer Tour.

To create an app in Flow Designer:

  • Configure the input source (trigger) for your app.

  • Configure the target component for your app.

For information on Design Center field values, see the Workday Connector Reference.

Configure the Input Source Trigger

A trigger starts your app. Workday Connector provides the New Object Trigger operation that starts your app when a new object is created in Workday. Alternatively, you can use the HTTP Listener operation to start your app from a browser or with a command such as curl. Another alternative is to use Scheduler to start your app on a timed schedule.

  1. In Design Center, click Create.

  2. Click Create new application.

  3. Specify a value for Project name, and click Create.

  4. Click Go straight to canvas to exit from Let’s get started and go to Flow Designer.

  5. Click the trigger card.

  6. If you are using Workday Connector as the input source trigger, search for the connector; otherwise, you can use HTTP or Scheduler.
