Power BI is a business analytics service by Microsoft. It aims to provide interactive visualizations and business intelligence capabilities with an interface simple enough for users to create their own reports and dashboards.

If Power BI is your preferred business intelligence tool, your organization can connect the tool to the Business Intelligence Connector to receive your Greenhouse Application data and perform advanced data analytics.

Allowlist IP addresses and retrieve Greenhouse database credentials

Note: For security reasons, Greenhouse is only able to allowlist the public IP addresses of your office. If your organization needs to access the database from a different IP address (e.g. for remote employees), please reach out to your IT team to explore other options, such as setting up VPN.

You can retrieve Greenhouse's Redshift credentials and add IP addresses to the allowlist in the Dev Center in Greenhouse Recruiting. (Configure Configure-icon.png > Dev Center > Business Intelligence Connector > Configure)
