Workday API Integration

This guide will walk you through the process of integrating your Workday account with Clinch Talent. Note this integration uses the Workday Web Services SOAP API as opposed to Workday Reports.

Configuring Workday API

  • Your Workday administrator should configure a user account that has a username and password, and can be used to make SOAP API calls.
  • The account needs to be in the Integration Developers group.
  • Clinch Talent will be making calls to the API end points: getCandidates, getJobPostings which are part of the Recruiting web service
  • The account will need permissions to access:
    • Job Postings
    • Job Postings: External
    • Job Requisitions for Recruiting
    • Job Location External Names e.g. "6110 Stoneridge Mall Road, Pleasanton, CA 94588"
    • Candidate: Global Search
    • Candidate Data: Job Application
    • Candidate Data: Sharing
  • The tenant name should be known as it is used in the Endpoint URL and the username e.g. [user-name]@[tenant-name]
