Rippling Integration Instructions

The following steps are will allow us to set up your integration between Rippling and Knoetic.

There are two ways to build our Rippling integration to support our clients. Both will have the same outcome:

  • Report-based integration based on Admin access for Knoetic and does not require an API key. This is required for all Rippling integrations.
    • For report-based integrations, you will only need to complete Step 1.
  • API integration which builds upon our Admin access through an API key. This is optional depending on if your team has the ability to create API keys in Rippling.
    • For API integrations, you must complete both Steps 1 and 2.

Step 1: Create a full access admin account for Knoetic

    2. Changes Report
  2. Our team will confirm that we've received access and follow up if we are missing any data points.

    2. Paste your API key (from Step #5)
    3. Paste any additional Admin account information

Appendix: Privacy and Data Requirements

Knoetic requires only basic information about employees: staffing details, positions, compensations, and organization information.

Knoetic explicitly does not require personal information about employees such as:

  • Social security numbers
  • Emergency contact information
  • Credit card or bank account numbers

We instruct our clients not to grant access to these fields, and internally our data integration processes strip highly sensitive employee attributes before they ever hit our servers.
