The new UKG Webhooks application allows you to subscribe to specific events and implement Hash-Based Message Authentication Codes (HMAC) that ensure the security of the messages. Subscriptions can be tested, deactivated, and reactivated at any time.

When an event is triggered in your UKG Pro® solution, the UKG Webhooks application enables you to pass that event’s information to an endpoint of your choosing in near real-time.

For more information about UKG Webhooks, refer to the following topics:

💡 Be sure to check out the Version History for each of our Pro APIs below, which outline the new APIs in this release:

🆕 Pro API updates

  • New: Added a full suite of Recruiting API resources and operations, over 100 in total. Be sure to check out the new Recruiting content in the Pro API specification.
  • Enhancement: Completely rewrote, updated, and enhanced the Payroll Earnings Import resource.
  • Enhancement: The Employee New Hire API has been updated to include these fields: ResidentStateTotalAllowancesClaimedCurrencyAmount and WorkStateTotalAllowancesClaimedCurrencyAmount. These fields each have a 10-digit maximum and can only include whole dollar amounts (decimals are not supported). Note: These fields are only to be used by Iowa locations. The Developer Hub entry for the Employee New Hire Service as well as the Employee New Hire Service API Guide, available in the UKG Community Library, have been updated to include these new field-level details.

Many other corrections and enhancements have been made to the Pro API. See the Release Notes for more details.

🆕 Pro WFM API updates

New Top-Level Domain: Universal Device Manager

A new top-level domain is now available covering the Universal Device Manager API resources and operations, beginning with UDM Devices and UDM Device Groups.

🔒 No longer supported: accountLocked boolean

The following API operations will no longer process the accountLocked boolean property in the request payload. If accountLocked is specified, it will be ignored by the system.

🚀 Enhancements to existing operations

  • Enhanced the request payload of the Stage Payroll Asynchronously (POST /v1/commons/payroll/staging/async) API operation with the customFields array, which allows you to specify custom fields to return in the response. (PS-179659)
  • Enhanced the Create Rule Set (POST /v1/scheduling/schedule_rule_sets) and Update Rule Set by ID (PUT /v1/scheduling/schedule_rule_sets/{ruleSetId}) API operations to support Employee Rule Sets. (PS-175466)

Many other corrections and enhancements have been made to the Pro WFM API. See the Release Notes for more details.

2023.R2.1

AppKey retired

You no longer need an AppKey to call API operations. If one is defined, it is ignored.

We've consolidated our separate methods of communicating our most important news into the What's New log, which provides an ongoing log of changes across the Hub. What's New contains this section covering changes to the Developer Hub as a whole and sections for each of our major APIs, like Pro and Pro WFM.

💡 What's New RSS feed

You can now subscribe to our What's New RSS feed at https://developer.ukg.com/general/changelog.rss. With this URL, you can use any RSS feed tool to input the URL. You can also generate HTML to embed the feed.

🔔 Notifications

The new notification bell icon alerts developers to API and other updates to the Developer Hub. The View all button at the bottom of the notifications box takes you to the What’s New page where you can view a chronological list of updates to Developer Hub.

🚧 UKG Pro status

The UKG Pro status link located at the top of each page will take you to the UKG Pro status page in the UKG Community. If you are experiencing issues with your API calls, you can check the status of UKG Pro services. Service disruptions impact API calls to that service.

To access the UKG Pro Status page, you must be logged in to UKG Community.

📜 Auto-expanding response schemas

API specifications now auto-expand the first HTTP status code 200-level response schema.

💡 API specifications: Authorization and URL

All API specifications now allow you to input the appropriate authorization values needed to call that API. For example, you can now enter the hostname and tenant ID in the URL for every API operation.

This enhancement makes it easier to create an example API request which can then be copied to the tool of your choice.
