Absences API : Endpoint for fetching hourly absences added
In Personio, it was already possible to fetch daily absence periods. We've added a new endpoint that allows customers to fetch hourly periods, along with daily breakdowns for those periods.
Employees API: Currency is now exposed
In Personio, it is already possible to retrieve salary data for employees. That salary data currently does not include the currency of a particular employee’s salary. From now on we are adding the currency attribute to the salary model in the employee endpoint.
Documents API: Post documents endpoints
Two new endpoints were added to the Personio public API.
Employee API: renamed the /custom-attributes endpoint with backward compatibility
The endpoint GET v1/employees/custom-attributes was originally created to support custom attributes only.
It evolved to more than that and now also returns information about regular attributes. To ensure correct naming we are renaming it to GET v1/employees/attributes.
Both endpoints will remain available to ensure compatibility.
Employees API: Universal ID is now exposed
The employee object now has the Universal ID (UID) exposed.
Attendances API: added optional "skip_approval" parameter
Attendances periods created via the POST
/company/attendances, the updates via PATCH
company/attendances and deletions via DELETE
company/attendances endpoints used to skip the approval process by default, so there was no way to create attendances requests using the public API.
Employee API: added email filter
We just added an email query parameter to the /company/employees endpoint, which allows you to find an employee with their given email address. The response is still a list, containing only the filtered employee.
Absence API: absence type configuration
In Personio, absence types are very customizable. For example, for a given absence type you can specify whether Half days, Substitutes, Absence certificates or similar options are required or possible. (Find more info here)
Employee API: absence balance endpoint
You can now retrieve the current balance per absence type for a given employee by calling the
Employee API: custom attribute types
The response of the GET
/company/employees/custom-attributes endpoints now returns the attribute type for custom attributes.
