An integration can send candidates directly to your Greenhouse Recruiting account using ingestion API. You'll need to create an ingestion API key to share with the integration. Check out the integration documentation for more information on a specific integration.
Create an ingestion API key
Click the Configure icon on your navigation bar, then click Dev Center.
Click API Credential Management.
Click Create New API Key to generate the API key for the integration.
Make the following selections:
- API type: Choose Candidate ingestion.
- Partner: Select the name of the integration that requested the API key. If the integration isn't listed, select unlisted vendor. If you're creating a custom integration, select custom.
- Description: Give your API key a descriptive name.
When finished, click Create to generate the API key and automatically assign it the appropriate permissions required by the integration.
After the key is created, click Copy. Paste the API key in a secure location to provide to the integration later.
Click I have stored the API Key.
When finished, click Save.
Provide the API key to your contact at the integration.
