How can we help you?

BI Connector Toolkit


BI Connector is an add-on to the Greenhouse Recruiting platform. It allows you to retrieve your organization's data in a format that can be readily plugged into a Business Intelligence (BI) tool for advanced reporting needs.

For customers with the BI Connector add-on, Greenhouse will transfer your data to Amazon Redshift at the end of every day. Your organization can then connect your in-house BI tool to Amazon Redshift to pull your data from Greenhouse.


NoteAlternatively, we can send your files to an Amazon S3 bucket you control. Your organization can then access your S3 bucket to download your files locally.  

Below you can find an index of additional resources for you and your team to get the most out of BI Connector. For any questions or support, please contact 

Documentation on data and reports:

  • Data schema - please subscribe to Release Notes to be notified any time there is a change to the data schema. Schema files are best opened up with a text editor like Sublime (free) after you change the file extension from .txt to .sql.
  • Guide to data tables (last updated 3/20/18) – a guide to each data table
  • Data model – a simple description of how certain data tables relate to each other
