Identity Manager 9.2 - Administration Guide for Connecting to Cloud HR Systems

Workday HR connector template

The Workday HR connector template provides object mapping and workflows for configuring Synchronization with Workday target system object types such as Identities, CustomOrgs and Location.

The name of the Workday HR connector template, provided as part of the Cloud HR Systems module, is One Identity Starling Connect Workday HR. This template consists of the following mapping sets.

Use case scenarios for Workday HR

This section provides details on the two use cases related to the Cloud HR Systems module.

These use cases can be tested on the installation of the Cloud HR Systems module

Creating a synchronization project and running the initial synchronization for Workday HR

This use case scenario creates the SCIM connector using the synchronization editor and runs the Initial Synchronization workflow.

To create a synchronization project and run the initial synchronization

  1. Open the Synchronization Editor. On the Start page, select Start a new Synchronization Project.
  2. On the Choose target system page, select the SCIM connector as the target system.
  3. If you want to use the remote connection server, on the System access page, select Remote Connection Server and click Next.
  4. Select Create a new system connection.
  5. In the Create a new connection wizard, add the connection data to the Workday HR Starling connector.
  6. In the displayed fields, enter the server parameters, authentication type, and the credentials for accessing the Workday HR Starling connector.
  7. After testing the connection and the endpoint configuration, if required, configure the schema extensions on the Schema Extensions page.
  8. On the Target product selection page, select the appropriate target product.
  9. On the Display Title page, enter an appropriate title and select the Save the connection locally check box.
  10. After the schema is loaded, select the One Identity Connect for Cloud Workday HR template, change the filters over the mappings if required, and enter a display name and description.
  11. On the Quit the project wizard page, click Finish.
  12. After the completion of the configuration, in the bottom left corner of the page, click Configuration.
  13. On the Navigation menu, select Start up configurations.
  14. Click Execute to run the initial synchronization workflow.

Synchronizing CustomOrgs object type with different subtypes for Workday HR

Workday HR object types such as Department, Division, Subdivisions, Desk and so on, are returned by a single Starling Connect endpoint namely, CustomOrgs.

This is inline with how the WORKDAY API works to retrieve the data from Get_Organizations. (In Starling Connect, it is renamed to CustomOrgs).

CustomOrgs endpoint has a Type attribute, which specifies the type of Workday HR object that is being synchronized, such as, Department, Division etc. This attribute is used to filter and synchronize the data into the extended tables or custom tables as per the requirement.

To configure OneIM synchronization workflow and mappings to process all the different sub object types returned by single Starling Connect endpoint for CustomOrgs

  1. Extend the One Identity Manager Database to create a new custom table. For example, CCC_Division.

    NOTE: For more information, see the Identity Manager 9.2 Configuration Guide in the Support site.

  2. Open Synchronization Editor and select the Synchronization project.
  3. In the Mapping section, create a new mapping select target system schema class as CustomOrgs, One Identity Manager schema class as the newly created table and enter the appropriate details in the other fields.

  4. Under the Workflow section, select Initial synchronization.

  5. Create a new workflow and select the mapping created in the earlier step.

  6. In the Processing tab, select insert option and add a condition to filter the data that will be inserted into the custom table using type attribute in CustomOrgs endpoint. For example : other.type=’Division’.

  7. Click OK and Commit to the Database.
