Troubleshoot the HireRight integration

No packages available when exporting to HireRight

If no packages are available when selecting to export a candidate to HireRight, it's possible that you don't yet have the appropriate permissions within HireRight. In order to be able to export candidates to HireRight and view the HireRight packages in Greenhouse Recruiting, you will need permissions on the HireRight side to do so.

We first recommend checking in with your HireRight Admin to make sure that your email has been allowlisted and to also confirm that this email matches the email you associated with your Greenhouse Recruiting account.

Note: Every Greenhouse Recruiting user has a primary (verified) and an optional secondary email address. For the integration to work properly, the email address used to log in to HireRight must match the verified email in Greenhouse Recruiting.
