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.

  2. The general rule is that packages ending on _API are public and supported api’s.

    On metalink you can find a list of supported api’s, not always maintained however after each family pack (note 121964.1).

    I talked with development months ago on this, and their point of view was clear: those api’s are there to be used on the project.

    I used them in a few cases, without any known side effects.
