Loading absences via REST API


Hi Team

We are loading absences via the create absence REST API.

Below is the pay load. 

                "personNumber": "100008",
                "employer": "CCS",
                "absenceType": "CABS_Annual_Vacation_Leave_Type",
                "startDate": "2020-05-07",
                "endDate": "2020-05-07",
                "startDateDuration" : "4.000",
                "endDateDuration": "4.000",
                "duration": "4.000",
                 "absenceStatusCd": "SUBMITTED",
                 "approvalStatusCd": "AWAITING"


When i load this API, i see the below 2 issues.

1. The absences does not go to approval hierarchy, it gets auto approved ( I ensured that the bypass approval is not checked ). Should i set any other parameter for absence approvals?

2. The duration of absence is not reflected in UI ( see screenshot)

I am using an elapsed schedule for employee, so not sure what to give in start and end duration. ( My employee is on a 4 hr work schedule, elapsed)

Howdy, Stranger!
