Overview and capabilities

15Five's HRIS Connector is a software integration that connects a company's HRIS (Human Resources Information System) to 15Five. The purpose of an HRIS connector is to allow employee data to flow from your HRIS provider to 15Five, enabling real-time employee data synchronization and automatic updates. This eliminates the need for manual data entry and reduces the risk of errors that can occur when data is entered multiple times into different systems.

We currently support the following HRIS systems:
  • ADP*
  • BambooHR
  • Ceridian
  • Deel
  • Freshteam
  • Hibob
  • Insperity
  • Justworks
  • Paychex
  • Paycor
  • Paylocity**
  • Personio
  • Sage
  • Sapling
  • SAP SuccessFactors
  • Trinet
  • UKG Pro
  • UKG Ready
  • Workday
  • Zenefits
*Please refer to this article for information on purchasing and setting up the ADP integration.
**For information about the data exchange from Paylocity to 15Five, please refer to the PDF at the bottom of this article.

Authenticate and set up the HRIS Connector



While the screenshots below show an integration with BambooHR, each HRIS follows similar authentication instructions.

  1. Click on the 'Settings' gear in the top, right-hand corner of 15Five.


  2. Select 'Integrations' from the dropdown menu.


  3. Click Connect your HRIS at the top of the page.
  4. You'll be taken to the connector page to select your HRIS. Click on the HRIS you want to integrate with from the list or use the search field to find your desired integration.Select-HRIS.png
  5. Now it's time to authenticate your account either via the integration's website (recommended when available) or using your API key or email and password. If you choose the latter option, the HRIS connector modal will guide you to where to find your API key. When you're done, click Next.



    Some integrations require additional prerequisites or permissions before authenticating. Please reference integration-specific authentication articles here.

  6. Review the data that 15Five can access through the integration, then click Continue.
  7. Enter your HRIS subdomain (most likely the name of your company), then click Submit.
  8. Click Open window to be directed to your HRIS account, where you will authorize the integration with 15Five.
  9. Once the authentication process is complete, you'll see a screen confirming that your integration is set up. Click Finish setup.
  10. You'll be directed back to 15Five to start syncing data. It typically takes 10-15 minutes for data from your HRIS to sync to 15Five, but for larger companies, this process can take up to a few hours.

Configure settings and sync employee and group data

Once the syncing process completes, it's time to configure integration settings and select the data you want to sync from your HRIS to 15Five.

  1. Begin by setting up any inclusion or exclusion filters you want to utilize. Click Add filter row to add additional filters.
    You can include/exclude users using the following filters:
    • Locations
    • Email
    • Employment statuses (Part-time, Full-time)
    • Groups (Departments + Divisions)
    • Department
    • Division name
    • Worker Category


    The HRIS Connector filters out inactive people by default.

  2. In the "Confirm your company settings" section at the bottom of the page, you can see your current settings for invite emails and demographic attributes. Click on the settings link to the right of either of these sections to access or change your current setting.
  3. Once you've finalized your filtering selections and confirmed settings, click Validate & Review to preview your data before syncing.
  4. Preview your data to make sure the information you're about to upload is accurate. If you need to make changes, click Back. If everything looks as expected, click Preview Group Type Data.
  5. You're now on the "Review Group Types" page. Here, determine which group types in your HRIS should be either:

    • Matched with group types in 15Five,
    • Created (if the group type doesn't yet exist in 15Five),
    • Excluded (if you don't want to sync a group type from your HRIS to 15Five), or
    • Untouched (if the group type exists in 15Five but not in your HRIS).

    When you're done, click Confirm Group Type Data.

  6. Now it's time to map groups from your HRIS to 15Five. Here, determine which groups in your HRIS should be either:
    • Matched with groups in 15Five,
    • Created (if the group doesn't yet exist in 15Five), or
    • Excluded (if you don't want to sync a group from your HRIS to 15Five).

    When you're done, click Confirm group data. Once all group data is confirmed, click Run data sync.

  7. You'll be taken to the "Sync data" page. This process usually takes a few seconds to complete. Once the sync finishes, your HRIS is officially integrated with 15Five and will sync every 24 hours moving forward.
  8. If at any time you want to see what data was imported, you can do so in the 'History' tab.
