To help you see the full context of who the requester of a specific request is you can now connect Back to your hibob account, bringing all relevant employee profile information into Back.

Configuring hibob

Before you connect Back to hibob, you need to generate an API key that will be used to fetch the relevant data.

Generate the API key

Navigate to your hibob page and log in. Then click on your initials / photo in the top right and choose API Access.

  • If you haven't generated a token yet, press Generate token to create a new one.

  • In other case use the one that's already there.

In either case, make sure that the token has Full Employee Read scope enabled in order for us to be able to access the needed employee profile information.

Using Service Users

In case you want to connect to our API using a dedicated Service User, let us know and we'll help you get set up.

Connecting to hibob

  1. In a new browser window log into Back and go to the Integrations section.

  2. Select Connect in the hibob row to open the configuration dialog.

  3. Enter the token into the configuration dialog and press Submit to enable the connection

If everything works fine, the status in the hibob row will change to Connected

Once connected we will periodically synchronize your employee information from hibob with Back incl. information about employee's role, department, office, supervisor, and hire date.

You can find the relevant employee information in the Requester tab in the sidebar on the request detail:
