Report specification: Sync user accounts with Workday


In order to sync user accounts with Workday using HRIS Link, you must build a report that matches Greenhouse Recruiting's specifications.

Note: HRIS Link relies on an exact match of the report column header; in most cases, you will need to update / override the default value when adding the column to your Workday report.


  • * = required field
  • † = case-sensitive column header

In this article, we will cover:


Report specification
