This guide will walk you through creating an API key within TriNet and entering it into linking flow.


You have to have Admin permissions in your company's TriNet instance or someone has shared their access with you.


Step 1: Generating your API key

  1. Open Company Profile, under Admin Apps

  2. Click on Custom Integrations

  3. Under Rest API Access, press Add Token

    When you configure the Permissions that you'd like to give access to the company you are connecting to, press Save!

Step 2: Copy and Paste API Token into Link

You have to click on the "eye" icon to reveal the API Token. From there, you can Copy and Paste this Token into Merge Link!


It's important to note that these are subject to the specific use-case of the company you are connecting to.

It is important to make sure the specific items under "People" are checked off.
