Workday Integration

Lyndsay Updated by Lyndsay

Workday Integration is a one-way integration that will allow you to sync learners daily, auto-assign training, and send notifications. This is a Premium integration. You may contact if you are an existing client who would like to add this integration to your account.
This is an advanced integration and will require a knowledgeable administrator, within your organization, who can assist with the setup and maintenance of this integration.
To get started, please follow these steps:

Step One: Log in to the Workday Tenant using an Administrator Account

Step Two: Create an Integration System User (ISU)

1. In the Search field, type “Create Integration System User”.

2. Select the Create Integration System User task.

3. Complete the Create Integration System User task by supplying, in the Account Information section, a User Name (we recommend "easyllama") and Password for a new Integration System User. The password can contain numbers, letters and only some special characters ($!#).

4. Check the Do not allow UI sessions box and leave the Session Timeout Minutes with its default value of 0.

Step Three: Create a Security Group and assign the Security Group to the ISU

1. In the Search field, type “Create Security Group”, and then click Create Security Group task.

2. On the Create Security Group page, from the Type of Tenanted Security Group dropdown menu, select Integration System Security Group (Unconstrained).

3. In the Name field, enter a name: easyllama-sg.

4. After the Security Group successfully created, you will see the Edit Integration System Security Group (Unconstrained) page, where you can assign members to the Security Group.

5. In Group Criteria section, add the new ISU, created in step 2, to the Integration System Users list of this security group.

  • Workday Accounts
  • Worker Data Public Worker Reports

  • Worker Data Current Staffing Information
  • Worker Data All Positions
