Access People HR

Learn about syncing your user list with Access People HR.

This guide outlines how to synchronize your application’s Access People HR directories.

To synchronize an Enterprise’s users and groups provisioned for your application, you’ll need the following information from the Enterprise:

  • Access People HR API key

The Enterprise will need to create an API key for you. First, they’ll need to log in to their Access People HR admin dashboard and select to the “Settings” page from the side bar menu. Then, select “API” from the Settings side bar menu. On the API Key Management page, select the plus sign to add a new API Key.
