How to configure your Hibob integration

To configure your Hibob integration, you will need to create service credentials on Hibob including a user ID and token. To do this:

  1. Log in to Hibob with a user that has administration permissions.
  2. Create a Service User and get your user ID and token from Hibob.
    1. In the Hibob Settings tab, go to Integrations > Automation > Service Users.
    2. In the Service Users card, select Manage. Then, on the next screen, click the New Service User button.
    3. In the popup, enter a Service User Name and a Display Name (e.g. Remote integration), then click Save.
    4. After you click Save, you will see a pop up with your user ID and token. Copy and securely store these credentials in a handy place. DO NOT close the pop up window or abandon the page until you have securely stored your user ID and token.
  3. Create a Permission Group.
    1. In the Hibob Settings tab, go to Permission groups > Create group

    2. In the Name Permission Group section, enter a name for your Permission Group (e.g. Remote integration).
    3. In the same screen, go to the “Create group” modal, and you will have to click on “Select people by condition” > Press Edit button

    4. In the Group members selector pop up window, go to the Add Specific Employees section. Open the drop down option for the Service Users.

    10. Enter your user credentials.
      1. You will need to log into your Remote account. Once you're in your Remote account, go to the Integrations tab and click on Add from the Hibob integration card.
      2. In the Add the Hibob integration section, you’ll select Add integration. Or you can click the Add Hibob integration button in the top right corner of the page.
      3. Enter the user credentials copied in step 2 into your Remote account. Then click the continue button.

How to sync employee information

Now that your Hibob integration has been added, you can set up your accounts to sync employee information from Hibob to Remote. To do this:

  1. In the Hibob People tab, go to Directory. Select the employee you want to sync with Remote.
  2. On the employee's profile, scroll down to the Work section and click on the edit button on the top right corner of the section.
  3. In the Sync to Remote field, select either As employee or As contractor, then click Done.
  4. Repeat this step for all the employees you would like to sync to Remote.

Now, you can manually sync those profiles from Hibob to Remote. Click the Manual sync button within Remote to manually force updates to sync in Remote. That’s it! You successfully added the Hibob integration and synced Hibob profiles.

Please note that once set up, the integration automatically syncs all selected employees’ data regularly. If your changes have not synced in Remote after having completed the integration setup, you can use the manual sync button in Remote or wait a few minutes and then try reloading the screen.
