Workday XML and Maven Support - Mule 4

If you manually code a Mule app in XML either from the Anypoint Studio XML editor or from a text editor, you can get access to Workday in your app by adding reference statements to your XML Mule flow and in the Apache Maven pom.xml file.

When you install the Workday Connector in Anypoint Studio, Studio automatically populates the XML code with the Workday Connector namespace and schema location, and adds a dependency to the pom.xml file.

Add a Namespace for the Connector

Paste the following code inside the mule tag of the header of your configuration XML:

http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/workday
http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/workday/current/mule-workday.xsd

This example shows how the namespace statements are placed in the XML:

<mule xmlns:$2="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/$2"
	xmlns:ee="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core"
	xmlns:http="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http"
	xmlns:file="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/file"
	xmlns="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core"
	xmlns:doc="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/documentation"
	xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
	xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/core/current/mule.xsd
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/file
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/file/current/mule-file.xsd
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/http/current/mule-http.xsd
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/ee/core/current/mule-ee.xsd
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/$2
	http://www.mulesoft.org/schema/mule/$2/current/mule-$2.xsd">

Add a POM File Dependency

The pom.xml Maven file generated by Anypoint Studio contains dependencies for a Mule app. When you code a Mule app manually, include this XML snippet in your pom.xml file to enable access to the connector.

<dependency>
  <groupId>com.mulesoft.connectors</groupId>
  <artifactId>mule-workday-connector</artifactId>
  <version>12.0.0</version>
  <classifier>mule-plugin</classifier>
</dependency>

To obtain the most up-to-date pom.xml file information:

  1. Go to Anypoint Exchange.

  2. In Exchange, click Login and supply your Anypoint Platform username and password.

  3. In Exchange, search for Workday.

  4. Click Dependency Snippets.

To obtain the most up-to-date pom.xml file information, access the connector in Anypoint Exchange and click Dependency Snippets.
