Does EmpWorkPermit support Incremental mode?

Reproducing the Issue

1. Do a query to get current data

Sample response payload:

2. Perform the upsert
"country": "178",
"documentNumber": "123",
"documentType": "10045",
"userId": "70004",
"issueDate": "/Date(878774400000)/",

3. Do a query once more and in the response, the only data that returned for the sample user was the upsert payload.

  • Expectation is it should have created a new permit and not remove the current data


Currently WorkPermit entity only supports FULL purge mode, which means it will purge all the previous records of that Person and inserts only the new added records.

There is no plan to support Increamental mode in b2011.
