ADP Event APIs and Event Notification Guide

Event Notifications allow your application to be aware of data change events. They can also be used to retrieve the latest data, to sync your system with ADP products and applications. When data is updated in an ADP application, ADP generates an Event Notification message. Then, the message is sent to a subscriber's message queue. To regularly check and retrieve Event Notification messages, subscribe your application to data change events.
