Configure user setup permissions in Greenhouse Recruiting

In order to enable the Greenhouse Recruiting / Employee Cycle integration, you will need the developer permission Can manage ALL organization’s API Credentials.

Contact a Greenhouse Recruiting user in your organization with Site Admin level permissions with the additional user-specific permission Can edit another user's advanced permissions to apply the API credential management permission to your account. Have the user with Site Admin level permissions edit your user account's permissions by navigating to the Configure icon Configure.png > Users > Your Name.

The user with Site Admin level permissions should navigate to the User-Specific Permissions panel on your user page and expand the Developer Permissions dropdown menu.

Select Can manage ALL organization’s API Credentials so a check is in the checkbox. When finished, click Save.

When finished, click Manage Permissions to generate the Harvest API key and automatically assign it the appropriate permissions required by Employee Cycle.

In the subsequent dialog box, click Copy to save your API key to your clipboard. Store the API key in a secure location to provide to COMPANY in the next step. Click I have stored the API Key once you have copied and saved the key.

Note: You cannot access the full API key again after clicking I have stored the API Key. If you lose your API key and need to access it later, you must create a new API key, provide it to the integration partner, and then revoke access to the original key.

On the subsequent page, confirm the following permissions are assigned to your new API key:

All GET requests in the following sections:

  • jobs
  • job_posts

If any of the permissions above are not checked, place a check in the box next to the appropriate permission. Click Save when finished.

Your Harvest API key for the Greenhouse Recruiting / Employee Cycle integration is created and configured.

Okay...here are some questions we love to answer: 

What Greenhouse data will be viewed/used in Employee Cycle, and can I make any changes? 

Employee Cycle provides pre-built dashboards for your Greenhouse data, but your account rep can work with you to add any additional metrics or visuals that were not originally included.

How often is my Greenhouse data updated in Employee Cycle?

Your data will be updated in real-time. 

How do customers get value from Employee Cycle?

Some of the main reasons HR and People leaders struggle to use data to make decisions include lack of time, manual processes, and using disconnected best-in-breed HR systems. By having all the data in one at-a-glance view, customers of Employee Cycle save time in reporting, become more confident decision-makers, and provide more value to their organizations.
