Operation: Put_Absence_Input

This operation adds a new Accrual or Time Off Adjustment/Override for an Employee (or updates an existing Adjustment/Override) with the supplied information. NOTE : This web service went through a breaking change for Workday 16. In Workday 14 and 15, unbounded Absence_Input_Line_Data elements were allowed within an Absence_Input_Data element. Going forward, Workday 16 does use Absence_Input_Line_Data elements and the data has been moved to the Absence_Input_Data parent element. If the older Workday schema is submitted, the first Absence_Input_Line_Data element is used and transformed internally to the updated schema. All nested Absence_Input_Line_Data elements beyond the first are ignored.


@ - A parameter name with this symbol denotes an XML attribute within the document instead of an XML element.
