    • Parameters: Click and configure the query parameters.
    • Message type: Select the data type as JSON.
    • Check the Repeat calling this Endpoint option to repeatedly call the API until you get the required response. From the drop-down menu, select the parameter and specify the increment value. You can also set a condition which, when satisfied, calls the endpoint repeatedly.
    • Note: You can configure multiple endpoints for an HCM solution.
  • Once done, click Test & Save. A response window will display all the requested elements.
  • Click Data Source - LDAP Attribute Mapping to map endpoints and AD LDAP attributes with the respective attributes in the HCM solution.

  • In the Attribute Mapping field, select the attribute from the LDAP Attribute Name drop-down menu and map it with the respective column in the HCM solution.

    For example:

    • Select the endpoint created and select the attribute ID from the drop-down.
