vsource is a talent sourcing platform that blends smart technology with human intuition to help recruiting teams become more efficient.

Greenhouse Recruiting’s integration with vsource allows users to automatically parse profile data from our users vsource platform to their Greenhouse CRM and/or ATS. This integration allows profiles to be attached to Greenhouse Recruiting job requisitions and pipelines. In this article, we will cover how to:


Configure user setup permissions in Greenhouse Recruiting

To enable the vsource integration, you 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 image-0.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.


Repeat as necessary for any other user that should have access to set up the integration.


Create a Harvest API Key for the vsource integration

To create a Harvest API key for the integration, click the Configure icon image-0.png in the upper-right corner, and navigate to Dev Center on the left 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 vsource.


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

  • API Type: Harvest
  • Partner: vsource
  • Description: vsource Harvest API key

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


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 vsource 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:

  • Candidates
    • Add Candidate
    • Add Prospect
    • Post Attachment
    • List Candidates
  • Jobs
    • List Jobs
    • Receive Jobs
  • Users
    • List Users

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 vsource integration is created and configured. Provide your Harvest API key to your vsource onboarding team so they can set up the integration.
