API Connection to Workday API?

Has anyone created a custom connector to the Workday API? Wanted to check with the Community prior to building one out.

 

Thanks!

Hi Workday Thread,

 

Trying to connect to the Workday Web Report and receiving the error "invalid format for date text = 2019-12-12.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Mike

Hi Michael - can you provide some additional detail?

 

Does the report execute without issue if you open in a browser?  Is there a date prompt that you are trying to update?  Which part of the string are you replacing?

hello John - so is it possible to have excel linked to workday so that data can be imported into an excel tab instantly and thereby avoiding the need to manually log in to workday and run report and extract and copy and paste every time I want the latest data?  Is this something you could show me?

I'm sure it's possible, but you would need to pass your credentials somehow. This isn't really the forum for Workday to Excel linkage. If you have any questions about pulling the data into Alteryx, I can do my best to help.

Thanks. I'll keep digging. I thought he was specifically referring to workday and excel.
