What's New: API Release October 2018


We are pleased to announce some important changes and services in this month's release...

New service endpoints

We have exposed 4 new endpoints related to Global Employees for our Customers and Partners to consume:


UltiPro Company Access Code


Question: What is a company Access code?
Answer: The company access code is the code an HR/System Admin creates when they are setting up the UltiPro mobile app. The code is unique to the company and once set it cannot be changed. This code is used on the first screen of the app to tide together the tenant and the app. This is the same access code used by UltiPro Connect.


API Rate Limiting


Ultimate's API management strategy employs an API gateway to manage quotas and rate limits for how many API calls an API client can make over a particular time period, normally 1 minute. If the rate of requests has been too high the server is not willing to accept thisĀ and will return to the API client an HTTP Status Code 429.

Introducing Model Domains

Ultimate is restructuring our API solution/project structure to be domain based.


API Deprecation Strategy


APIs are best thought of as a contract provided by Ultimate Software to its customers and internal developers. Customers or third-party developers and partners can work with our APIs to build integrations on their own systems. Sometimes it is necessary to phase out an API endpoint (or version). I.e. this may be necessary if a field is no longer supported in the result or a business functionality behind an endpoint has to be shut down. There could be other reasons as well.
