From Version To Version

12.1

13.x

What’s Changed

13.x

  • Upgraded the Workday API to 35.0

  • Added the Moments operation, which enables you to invoke the Workday Moments web service

  • Removed the version from the workday:config-version-34-config and workday:basic-authentication-api-v34-connection elements.

    In the previous release, the XML for these elements looked like this:

    <workday:config-version-34-config name="My_Workday_Connection"
    doc:name="Workday Config" >
    <workday:basic-authentication-api-v34-connection password="${workday.password}"
    tenantName="${workday.tenantName}" userName="${workday.userName}" />
    </workday:config-version-34-config>

    The XML now looks like this:

    <workday:config name="My_Workday_Connection"
    doc:name="Workday Config" >
    <workday:basic-authentication-api-connection password="${workday.password}"
    tenantName="${workday.tenantName}" userName="${workday.userName}" />
    </workday:config>

Upgrade Prerequisites

Before you upgrade Workday Connector from version 12.x to version 13.x, you must:

  1. Create a backup of your files, data, and configuration in case you need to restore the connector to the previous version.

  2. Install Workday Connector 13.x to replace the Workday operations that were previously included in Workday Connector 13.x.

Upgrade Steps

Follow these steps to perform the upgrade from Workday Connector 12.x to Workday Connector 13.x:

  1. In Studio, create a Mule project.

  2. In the Mule Palette view, click Search in Exchange.

  3. In the Add Dependencies to Project window, enter workday in the search field.

  4. In the Available modules section, select Workday Connector - Mule 4 and click Add.

  5. Click Finish.

  6. Verify that the workday-connector dependency version is 13.0.0 in the pom.xml file.

Studio upgrades the connector automatically.

Verify the Upgrade

After you install the latest version of the connector, follow these steps to verify the upgrade:

  1. In Studio, verify that there are no errors in the Problems or Console views.

  2. Check the project pom.xml file and verify that there are no problems.

  3. Test the connection and verify that the operations work.

Troubleshooting

If there are problems with caching the parameters and caching the metadata, try restarting Studio.

Revert the Upgrade

If you must revert to the previous version of Workday Connector, change the workday-connector dependency version 13.x.x in the project’s pom.xml file to the previous version.

You must update the project’s pom.xml file in Studio.
