Overview

The Core HR Agreement Type API allows you to manipulate agreement types. The purpose of this API is to provide an endpoint for the consumers to insert a new agreement type or update an existing one. The Agreement Type API allows for:

  • Creating a record for a new agreement type in the system.
  • Updating a record for an existing agreement type in the system.
  • Archiving a record for an existing agreement type in the system.

Requesting API Credentials

For information on how to obtain API credentials and to start integrating with the Core HR API, please visit the Getting started page.


Before you begin

To begin using any of the Core HR APIs, there are a few things that you will need:

  1. Authentication credentials for the particular PageUp Customer/Client
  2. You will need a valid (oAuth)JWT token to authorize yourself to access the end points in this API. When requesting the bearer token with the authentication service please ensure you include the scope Public.HrCore.Write in the authentication request. Multiple scopes may be requested by specifying them as space separated list. The available scope for the endpoints in this page is
    Public.HrCore.Write
    

Technical

  • API's are secured using oAuth (client credentials grant flow)
  • Integrators must handle common errors and support surfacing of error messages back to the user when a request is not successful
  • Integrators must log all relevant errors and be able to provide a copy to PageUp to assist with troubleshooting when required
Notes:
  • Client ID and Client secret will be different per environment (i.e. UAT and LIVE)
  • The oAuth token has an expiry period of 300 seconds.

Monitoring

  • Integrators must have in place monitoring processes to alert on failed requests, updates, retries or any other mechanisms.

Examples

Here are some examples on how to create and update Agreement Types using the Core HR Agreement Type API. Please note that the Agreement Type ID (externalId) field is mandatory for all requests, however there are certain fields that are mandatory based on the action that you are trying to perform. More details on these fields are available in the following sections.
