2649847 - Effective-Dated vs. Period-Based Delta Transmission - CompoundEmployee API


Employee Central’s Compound Employee API offers two different kinds of delta transmission:

  • Effective-dated delta transmission
  • Period-based delta transmission

Effective-dated delta transmission is designed for consumers that work in an effective-dated manner. This means, it is assumed that consumers store the time frame (start and end date) when a data record is effective. Deltas are communicated with regard to the time frames that have been transmitted in the last replication.

In contrast to this, period-based delta transmission is intended for consumers that are not able to deal with effective-dated objects. Deltas contain retro-active changes and effective-dated objects that are relevant for the given period.
