Creating a BambooHR connection

To create the connection you need:

  • An API key

Obtaining the credentials

  1. Click your profile picture, and then select API Keys.


  2. Click Add New Key.


  3. Enter an API Key Name and click Generate Key.



Each API request sent from a third-party application to the BambooHR website will be authenticated and permissioned as if a real user were using the software. The permissions of the user associated with the API request will determine which fields and employees each API request is allowed to view and/or edit.

  1. Copy the generated token.
