Create API users

Updated in November- 2023 | Subscribe to watch greytHR how-to video

The Application Programming Interface (API) Users page in the greytHR Admin portal lets you make new users who can access APIs whenever needed. APIs are like messengers that help applications talk to each other, so organizations can share data efficiently. Through this page, you can also give each API user different roles and credentials to access employee-related data like attendance, leave, and payroll. This allows you to create and personalize functions based on what you need.

To view the API Users page, click Settings > My Account > API users.

⚠️ We recommend you to contact the greytHR support team before making any changes in settings.
