Absences API - POST absence-periods allows for creation of absences with certificate requirements

The POST Absence Periods endpoint has been upgraded in a graceful manner, to accept hourly absence requests in accordance with the absence certificate requirement set on the Personio application. It is now optional to upload a certificate when creating an absence via the UI for hourly absence types, mirroring the behaviour of daily absence types. So creating an absence through the endpoint wouldn’t require uploading a certificate. However, the capability to upload a certificate itself through the endpoint remains unsupported at this time.

This functionality will be rolled out to all customers by February 9, 2024
