Setup an Auth Creator Account

First, You'll need a Paycor username & password with access to AppCreator. The Developer Portal is available to all Paycor clients, however, you must have an HR/Payroll/Company Admin create an App Creator account to utilize the API.

  1. Go to

  2. Click on “Sign In” in the upper-right hand corner

  3. Sign In

  4. Now back on the main landing page select “Join” on the main page

  5. Select “Get Started” below “Are you an existing Paycor Client”

  6. Then you will be able to select the Client ID's you would like to be eligible for this App Creator account or Select All existing and Future Clients

  7. Only Company Admin, Payroll Admin or HR Admin can access the API.

Once the user is created you can enter in your Company ID and authenticate Paycor through Merge Link.

Find your Company ID

Click on the ☰ menu icon, then click on Company > Departments.

You'll find your company ID on the top left. It will look something like "290180". Enter the Company ID into Merge Link.

Next, a new window will appear with a login to the Paycor website. Login, and you should be all set to authenticate.
