BambooHR Integration Instructions

The first step to getting your Knoetic account up-and-running is to incorporate your HRIS data, and we integrate with a number of systems!

To complete this process, you must have administrator access to BambooHR.

  1. Open our secure key drop in a new window—you'll need this later!
  2. Log into BambooHR.
  3. In the top right of the screen, click on your initials to open the settings dropdown. Click on API Keys.
  1. Click Add New API Key and enter the key name “Knoetic”. Then click Generate Key.
  1. A unique API key will then be created for you. Copy the access key (or click on the COPY KEY button) before you navigate away from this page because it will only appear once. 
  2. Open Knoetic's secure key drop page:
  3. Paste your Bamboo URL ( and API key into the ‘Data’ section of Knoetic's secure key drop page.
  4. Fill out all relevant information and click ‘Submit Securely’ when done. As a reminder, your key drop should contain the following information:
    - Your API token
    - The URL you use to access Bamboo HR
  5. Return to the Bamboo window and click "Done".

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.
