Microsoft Azure Migration - 8 August 2020

We are preparing to move our entire infrastructure to Microsoft Azure and as a result of some timeout limitations in Azure, we need to change the URL of our SOAP API web services.

The change involves the current URL of our SOAP end points changing as follows:

  • Current:
  • Changing to:


  • For example, the Employee Basic Profile end point URL is currently:
  • This will now be changing to:

The new URL is available as of immediate effect and we urge you to make the change as soon as possible and test that there are no unforeseen issues. The infrastructure change did take place on Saturday 11 July 2020. The current URL will still remain in place and be available after this date, however, there will be a time out limit of 2.5 minutes from this date onwards on the current URL. This will impact long running requests such as the Employee Changes end point. The new URL will not have a time out limit and will function as you are used to.

PaySpace API Integration

PaySpace API Integration / Web Services Integration makes it easy for customers and developers to integrate PaySpace with a variety of 3rd party applications including existing on-premise solutions. With a complement of SOAP web services, it is easy to integrate with PaySpace the way you need it most.

API Integration Key Benefits & Features

  • Web services integration for core employee operations.
