Configure SOAP services for an HR management system

If you are using SOAP services with your integration, create or modify the appropriate HR web services to define the SOAP messages used to communicate with the third-party HR management system for the inbound integration.

Before you begin

Role required: sn_hr_integrations.admin

About this task

You can use SOAP messages to communicate with the third-party system. For example, the preconfigured Workday integration uses SOAP services, while the preconfigured SuccessFactors integration uses both SOAP and REST services. See Outbound SOAP web service for more information.
