Product tier: Available for Expert tier subscription with HRIS Link add-on

With HRIS Link, you can programmatically import offices and departments to sync changes from your HRIS to Greenhouse Recruiting.

To import offices / departments, you'll need to construct a RaaS (report as a service) in your HRIS that meets Greenhouse Recruiting specifications. You'll need to create standalone reports for both offices and departments if you intend to import both.

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.

Report specification: Offices

Note: HRIS Link currently only supports Workday.

Use the table below to create your HRIS Link office import report. The primary business object in your report should be Location.

Once constructed, enter the report URL and your ISU credentials in HRIS Link.

Report column header

Workday field Greenhouse Recruiting field
name

✓ Required field

Location name Office name
external_id

✓ Required field

Reference ID Office external ID
external_parent_id Parent Location Reference ID
