University of Washington ROA & Web Services

Welcome to our UW web services feedback forum. Do you have an idea for a web service? Do you recognize a good web service idea when you see one? We want to hear from you!

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Provide web service access to OWLS data

    Provide a web service that allows access to the UW Online Work/Leave System (OWLS) data for employee schedules and available leave time.
    Currently OWLS is a read only web interface for UW employees, forcing departments to implement their own systems for employees to request and get approval for leave time. This means that departments either have a cumbersome wasteful paper based system, or they implement a web based system where the schedule for every employee must be manually added into the system.

    • Provide a service returning the EINs of all employees having appts in a budget number or org code

      This service would be usable by the Groups Web Service provisioner for maintaining organizational groups. Given a budget number, we'd need the EIN's of employees whose current (active, inactive) apptDeptBudgetNbr matches. Or whose HomeDeptBudgetNbr matches. Or whose DistBudgetNbr matches. Or whose (Appt, Home, Dist) budget nbr is in a particular Org Code.
      Whew!

      • A HRPWS person service

        MyUW'd like to use HRPWS to replace the current data feed from ODS. Will supply a list of employee ID and get back these data elements: regid, employee type, on/off campus, employee status.
