A web service is used for completion of holidays in the database. This is not automated out-of-the-box.
In order to manually invoke this web service and to import the holidays, Object Browser can be used:
Open the DialogCountry table, select the appropriate country from the results list and execute the Method definition "Load holiday data for country":
This method invokes the script "VID_LoadHolidaysForCountry", which contacts the web service.
This can also be automated:
Create a process on the DialogCountry table which executes this script via a ScriptExec-Step. Define a schedule for this process, which is executed on the first day of the year, for example.
Please note: Only holidays up until the maximum date in the DialogCalendar table will be imported. This table is filled automatically. The amount of years for past and the future is determined by the Configuration Parameters "Common\Calendar\YearsPast" and "Common\Calendar\YearsFuture". The Default is 5 years into the past and 3 years into the future.
