Greenhouse Integration Instructions

The following instructions can also be found on Greenhouse's Help Center. 

In order to integrate your Greenhouse with Hired, you will need to:

  1. Configure user setup permissions within your Greenhouse
  2. Create a Harvest API key for Greenhouse Recruiting / Hired Integration
  3. Enter the Harvest API key in Hired 

1. Configure user setup permissions within your Greenhouse

In order to enable the Greenhouse Recruiting / Hired integration, you will 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 iconConfigure.png > Users > Your Name.

The user with Site Admin level permissions should navigate to the User-Specific Permissions panel on your user page and click manage ALL organization’s API Credentials under the Developer Permissions section. When finished, click Save.

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 Hired 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 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 following permissions are assigned to your new API key:


  • GET: Retrieve Application
  • GET: List Applications


  • GET: Retrieve Candidate
  • GET: List Candidates
  • POST: Add Candidate
  • POST: Add Attachment

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 Greenhouse Recruiting / Hired integration is created and configured.

3. Enter the Harvest API Key into Hired
