Enterprise Web Services (EWS) has released an update in EVAL for multiple web services in support of UW Finance Transformation (UWFT). For an overview of how EWS is adapting to support UWFT, refer to EWS for Finance Transformation.
Monthly Scheduled Releases
- EVAL: Updates to EVAL environments for all EWS services are released on the same monthly schedule. This allows us to better synchronize with Enterprise Data Platform’s release schedule for Finance Transformation. For more information, refer to the Data Availability Timeline.
- PROD: Updates to PROD environments for all EWS services reflect changes from the previous month’s EVAL release (for example, if EVAL reflects Release 21, then PROD reflects Release 20).
What’s New in EWS Release 21
|Web Service||Overview of Release|
|FWS v2 (Outbound)||
|FWS Common Transactions (Inbound)||

Change to EWS EVAL Server Endpoint
There were previously two endpoints for the EWS EVAL Server: https://it-wseval1.s.uw.edu/ and https://wseval.s.uw.edu/. We have implemented a new load balancer, which removed it-wseval1 as an available endpoint. This change took effect in EWS EVAL environments on 5/25/23. Any configurations or bookmarks that still point to it-wseval1 will break.
Recommended Action – Evaluate EVAL Endpoints
If you haven’t done so already, please evaluate your configurations or bookmarks to ensure they point to the correct endpoint: https://wseval.s.uw.edu/. If they are already pointing to wseval, no action is required.
For support with this change, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Resource Worktag Error
If you’re receiving a missing Resource worktag error when posting common transactions via FWS Inbound, your system or integration may be impacted by the most recent Tenant 5 build, which became available in UW13 on 4/17/23. In this case, you will need to update your system remediation and integration and then retest. To learn more, refer to Resource Worktag: Updated System Integration Requirements.
Transitioning Access for FWS v2 Outbound and FWS Inbound to Production
We are preparing to transition FWS v2 Outbound and FWS Inbound access for Go Live and will be reaching out to users to ensure access is provisioned correctly. Please watch for more information via email next week.
HRPWS v3 EVAL for UWFT Environment
We have set up an HRPWS v3 EVAL environment that points to Workday UW13 data to support UWFT. We encourage all current HRPWS users to connect their current solutions to this environment before Go Live to become familiar with how the data will change and to adapt if needed.
