How do I generate API keys for Partners that work with Greenhouse?

Greenhouse allows various partners to reach out to it's Partner API to streamline the recruiting process. (Partner Client applications include Rolepoint, Entelo, Blue Glue, RecruitiFi, Hirable,, Simppler, Piazza,, and Connectifier)

Important note: Only users who have the advanced "Can manage ALL organization's API credentials" permission can generate Partner API keys.

Take the following steps to generate the API Key:

  • Click the Configure tab
  • Click Dev Center
  • Click API Credential Management


On the API Credential Management page, click the Create New API Key button.


From the Type drop-down menu, select Partner.

From the Client Application drop-down menu, select the partner application for which you are generating the API Key. 

 Entering a description is optional. When finished, click Create.

This will generate your API key which you can then share with your Partner Applications. Your Account Manager for each respective Application should be able to help you with the actual implementation of the integration in their app. 

Please Note: While the Partner API key is meant to be shared, providing your Harvest API key with partners is like making them a Site Admin in your organization. With our new Harvest API key permissions however, you can now control which Harvest API endpoints a partner can access with their key. If a partner requests a Harvest API key, you'll want to check with your partner to review and confirm what endpoints they need access to for their integration. For more information, check our Harvest API key permissions FAQ:
