  • Configure User Setup Permissions in Greenhouse Recruiting
  • Create a Harvest API Key for the Greenhouse/vsource Integration
  • How to use the integration and connect jobs between vsource and Greenhouse

Configure User Setup Permissions in Greenhouse Recruiting

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

Contact a Greenhouse 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   > Users > Your Name).

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

Select Can manage ALL organization’s API Credentials so that 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 Greenhouse/vsource Integration

To create a Harvest API key for the integration, click on the Configure icon  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 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. If you selected vsource in the Partner dropdown list, the appropriate permissions are assigned to the API key automatically.

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 the partner. 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 correct permissions are assigned to your new API key, or assign the permissions yourself by clicking the appropriate checkboxes. We recommend granting each key only the exact access it requires. You may need to work with your internal development team or integration partner to determine which endpoints you should select.

When you finish selecting the appropriate endpoints, click Save at the bottom of the page.


On the Manage API Key Permissions page; make sure that the following endpoints are selected:

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

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