Upgrade Prerequisites

Before you upgrade Workday Connector from version 15.x to version 16.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 16.x to replace the Workday operations that were previously included in Workday Connector 15.x.

Upgrade Steps

Follow these steps to perform the upgrade from Workday Connector 15.x to Workday Connector 16.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 16.0.0 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.


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 16.x.x in the project’s pom.xml file to the previous version.

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