Erpnext attendance integration


how can I implement this api. Is there any developer guide available. please let me know.

@megha007 just add a header with authorization fields . and add the function fields to the body .
for exemple

"employee_fieldname" : "name" ,
"employee_field_value" : employee_id ,
"timestamp" : {{timestamp}},

if you have know idea about api integration , check this documentation.

okay Thank you so much.

I m getting permission denied error.

@megha007 share some screenshots

I’m testing it by postman.

@megha007 have you set the header tag correctly ?

I think no. Actually I don’t know which fields is set to be in header. Please tell me.

@megha007 easy . click on header next to body . add a new field called (Authorization) and the value must be : “token api_key:api_secret” .exemple (token ggs56df4g6s5:6s5df65qsd).
to get your key and token . open your profile (better be admin). scroll down to last section and click generate key .

however I think you already did it but your user has no permissions to execute that command

Hmm. you are right. and thank you so much… It really helps me a lot.

@megha007 did it work ?

Yes, Now I’m able to call API, but it is giving some validation error. I’m trying to solve it.

@megha007 share it .

@megha007 employee (HR-ATT-2022-00002) not found . open employee list on website and copy an existing employee id . it should be something like this (HR-EMP-00001)

okay… it works :slightly_smiling_face:

@megha007 nice . select one of the replies as solution please :slight_smile:

One more question, I can see this data in website. right??
