An API for Element types

A new set of Oracle HRMS API’s has been published since HRMS Family Pack E which includes an API for element types and input values.

One of the consequences is that there is now a supported way to migrate the element types from a development environment to the production instance, aside from manually rekeying the elements.

I recently used the update procedure of the element type api to link a high number of element types to an event group for retronotification.

The names of the api’s involved are Pay_element_types_api and Pay_input_value_api.
