Workday Report-as-a-Service (RaaS) is a feature that exposes reports as web services. These reports must be configured as Advanced type reports to be web service enabled.

In this example, Base Pay is assigned to Prompt Qualifier as Prompt #1, which will be used in filters.
Apply logic to filter prompt values.
Use values from Prompt to compare against report column values. Example, assign Prompt parameter Base Pay as Prompt #1.
