Rippling helps your organization's HR and IT — from payroll and benefits to employee computers and software — all in one, easy-to-use platform.

Greenhouse Recruiting has built an integration with Rippling so your organization can import a candidate's information and offer details from Greenhouse into Rippling with just one click. In this article, we will cover how to:

Create a Harvest API Key for the Greenhouse Recruiting / Rippling Integration

To create a Harvest API key for the integration, click on the Configure icon Configure.png in the upper right-hand corner. Navigate to Dev Center on the left-hand panel. From the Dev Center page, click API Credential Management.


From the API Credential Management page, click Create New API Key to generate the API key for Rippling.


In the Create New Credential dialog box, make the following selections:

  • API Type: Harvest
  • Partner: Rippling
  • Description: Rippling Harvest API Key

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


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 Rippling 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 Harvest 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:


  • GET: List Candidates


  • Checkmark all User permissions


  • GET: List Offers


  • GET: List Jobs

Job Stages

  • GET: List Job Stages

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 / Rippling integration is created and configured. 

Enable Greenhouse Recruiting / Rippling Integration

With your Harvest API Key copied, navigate to your Rippling dashboard and scroll down to the app store. Search for Greenhouse and click the app.

Click Connect Existing Account and follow Rippling's guide to continue the brief setup process.
