How to create a worker in x++

How to create worker in x++

In today’s article, we will see how to create a worker using X++.

Step 1: Create a class and define the global variable.

class TestHireNewWorker
ValidFromDateTime DefaultValidFromDateTime = HcmDateTimeUtil::startOfCurrentDay();
FirstName firstName = 'Julia';
LastName lastName = 'Reeves';
HcmTitleId hcmTitleId = 'Mrs';
HcmPositionRecId positionRecId;
HcmWorkerRecId workerRecId;
CompanyInfoRecId legalEntityRecId = CompanyInfo::current();
DirPersonName personName;
utcdatetime startDate = HcmDateTimeUtil::startOfCurrentDay();
utcdatetime endDate = DateTimeUtil::maxValue();

Step 2: Create new method to insert Title in the master table.

 public  HcmTitle createTitle(HcmTitleId _hcmTitleId)
        HcmTitle hcmTitle = HcmTitle::findByTitle(_hcmTitleId);
			hcmTitle.TitleId = _hcmTitleId;
        return hcmTitle;

Step 3: Create a new method to enter first name, middle name and last name in the Dir party table.

private DirPersonName createPersonName(FirstName _firstName, MiddleName _middleName, LastName _lastName)
        DirPerson dirPerson;
        DirPersonName dirPersonName;
        dirPersonName.FirstName = _firstName;
        dirPersonName.MiddleName = _middleName;
        dirPersonName.LastName = _lastName;
        dirPersonName.ValidFrom = DefaultValidFromDateTime;
        dirPersonName.ValidTo = DateTimeUtil::maxValue();
        dirPersonName.Person = dirPerson.RecId;
        return dirPersonName;

Step 4: Create a new method to insert data for HcmWorker titles.

public HcmWorkerTitle createWorkerTitle(HcmWorker _worker, HcmTitle _title)
			HcmWorkerTitle hcmWorkerTitle;
			hcmWorkerTitle.Title  = _title.RecId;
			hcmWorkerTitle.Worker = _worker.RecId;
			hcmWorkerTitle.ValidFrom = DateTimeUtil::minValue();
			hcmWorkerTitle.ValidTo   = DateTimeUtil::maxValue();
			return hcmWorkerTitle;

Step 5: Create a run method and call above method.

Note: You can create position and assign the record id and dates. I am not using position details.

public void run()
        HcmPersonnelNumberId personnelNumber = HcmWorker::getNewPersonnelNumber();
        personName = this.createPersonName(firstName, '', lastName);
        HcmHireNewWorkerContract hireNewWorkerContract = HcmHireNewWorkerContract::construct();
      //  hireNewWorkerContract.parmPositionRecId(positionRecId);  Assign position to worker
        //  hireNewWorkerContract.parmPositionAssignmentStartDate(startDate); Assign position assignment start date
        //  hireNewWorkerContract.parmPositionAssignmentEndDate(endDate); Assign position assignment end date
        hireNewWorkerContract.parmEmploymentValidFrom(startDate); //Assign employment start date
        hireNewWorkerContract.parmEmploymentValidTo(endDate); //Assign employment end date
        hireNewWorkerContract.parmLegalEntityRecId(legalEntityRecId); //Assign current legal entity
        workerRecId = HcmWorkerTransition::newHireHcmWorkerV2(hireNewWorkerContract);
        HcmWorker hcmWorker = HcmWorker::find(workerRecId);
        HcmTitle hcmTitle = this.createTitle(hcmTitleId);

Step 6: Create a main method, instance of class and call the run method from main. method.

public static void main(Args _args)
        TestHireNewWorker TestHireNewWorker = new TestHireNewWorker();;
