Category: Workday Integration Posted:Apr 21, 2020 By: Alvera Anto

In today’s article, we’ll throw light on all the important information one should know about Workday Integration EIB. Let’s start with


What is Workday EIB?

Workday EIB (Enterprise User Interface Home Builder) is an assisted and graphical no-code interface that’s apt for inbound and outbound integrations. An outbound EIB extracts information from a specific source, using FTPs to transfer information, while inbound EIBs move data directly. Using Workday EIB, you can carry information via SFTP, email, WebDav, SOAP, and also REMAINDER (among other options). If you do decide to use SFTP, you can safeguard your EIB data in Workday with digital signatures and PGP file encryption.

Employing EIB to feed information via the Web Service enables you to access various safety and security settings than that of the browser-based inputs.

KEEP IN MIND: Not all data items are web-service allowed, yet those with high quantity (and where timeliness is essential) will certainly be.

In addition to its other advantages, Workday EIB can also create filenames in sequence for multi-file work, saving you a lot of time and effort (not to mention decreasing the opportunity of misnaming a vital file). 

Now let’s see, What is XML?

XML means “eXtensible Markup Language.” A data kind that’s utilized by EIB, XML describes information as well as looks a bit like this:

  • What is this thing in column 1? We call it “Worker ID”.
  • What sort of data is it? It’s a message field.
  • What is the information worth for this document? The value is “1050234”.
  • What is this thing in column 2? We call it “Legal Given Name”.
  • What sort of information is it? It’s a message area.
  • What is the data value for this record? The value is “Elizabeth”.
  • What’s this next point in column 3? We call it “Preferred First Name”.
  • What type of data is it? It’s a message field.
  • What is the information value for this record?” The worth is “Beth”.

That’s not all that an XML file looks like, yet that is what it’s doing. It essentially “self-describes” the data, and afterward reveals the data worth itself.

The XML criterion is a flexible means to produce information styles and electronically share organized data using the public internet, along with business networks. Technically speaking, EIB data are text files formatted to adhere to the XML regulations. Frequently, those XML documents are used as inputs to a Workday-delivered internet service that updates the database object (as an example, Insert, Update, as well as often Delete).

Typical Ways to Use Workday EIB

There are various means to use EIB to conserve your effort and time. Right here’s one: if you need to pay commissions to hundreds of salespeople on a monthly or perhaps quarterly basis, there’s no demand to have Sales Operations enter each commission to each salesman independently. You can merely develop an EIB component utilizing the “Develop EIB” command in Workday and later develop the XML data making use of Excel that chooses the Workday EIB module just produced.

Below are a couple of more examples of ways to utilize EIB in Workday

  • Importing one-off settlements like compensations, annual benefits, or spot-bonuses.
  • Mass producing task requisitions and hires including business acquisition or seasonal mass employees (holiday season temp workers, the beginning of the academic year, and so on).
  • Mass settlement boosts (such as yearly advantage boosts), although these will not be necessary if you’ve implemented Workday’s “Advanced Settlement” component.

A crucial thing to bear in mind about the structure of EIB XML data: while they resemble producing data in Excel, the process isn’t quite very easy. So if there are 20 or fewer documents to add/change or remove in Workday, you’ll possibly discover it quicker to just do those updates manually.

That’s just a minor look through what Workday EIB can do for you. For a better view of just how to make the most of everything Workday needs to offer, visit our website.
