Workday data type reference overview

Data Integration uses the following data types in mappings and mapping tasks with Workday:
Workday native data types
Workday data types appear in the parameters in the Workday operations and you cannot changes these data types.
Transformation data types
Set of data types that appear in the remaining transformations. They are internal data types based on ANSI SQL-92 generic data types, which Data Integration uses to move data across platforms. Transformation data types appear in all remaining transformations in a mapping or mapping task.
When Data Integration reads or writes Workday data, it converts the native data types to the comparable transformation data types before transforming the data.
