Integrations with WorkDay

Enterprise HRIS Integration

  • Typically, HRIS Integrations with EdCast comprise of these three aspects:
    • Employee Profile Modelling
      • Setting up a Typical User Profile on LXP
    • Employee Data Synchronization
      • Groups, Users, Managers, Custom Attributes, etc
    • SSO Integration
      • SAML, OAuth, OpenID Connect

Employee Profile Modeling - Mandatory Attributes

  • The LXP can work with the most minimal amount of employee
    information - only the following attributes are mandatory
    Email
    First Name
    * Last Name
  • A consistent user account can be created using these mandatory attributes

Employee Profile Modeling - Custom Attributes

  • LXP User Account can be enriched to pass some additional information
    from the customer’s HR record such as:
    Employee ID
    Business Unit
    * Functional Manager
  • Custom attributes can be populated using any of our integration modes from the HR record of the Employee

Workday Connector

  • Supports adding/updating custom attributes
  • Supports synchronizing user states
