  4. Select OAuth JWT authentication from the Authentication mode drop-down list and: fill the other fields as prompted.
    1. Type in the username of the Workday integration system user in the User login field.
    2. Type in token endpoint and client identifier in the corresponding fields. They are generated in the Registering an API client task.
    3. Type in the private key by clicking the [...] button next to the field and copy-paste the content of the private key file into the Enter a new password dialog box.
  5. Verify the settings by clicking Check connection and then click OK in the following message box.
