Data Access for the Employee Data API


This article explains all necessary settings for using the employee data API.

To protect our customers during data access via the API, the obsolete TLS versions 1.0 and 1.1 will be disabled for access to our API in the near future. You should check with your IT as soon as possible to make sure that current versions of TLS and ciphers are in use.


Setting Up the Employee Data API

The credentials for the employee data API and your company ID can both be found under Settings > API > Credentials in your Personio account.


You can download your API credentials from there. Click on Download, to open the relevant text document.

If you request API credentials again, your current API credentials will be invalidated.


Selecting the Attributes for Transmission

You can now define the individual attributes that you would like to transmit via API. To do so, navigate to the Access > Edit tab and select any number of attributes from the list.

Note that the white-labeling restriction only applies to the GET request and not to the POST request. 


The documentation for our API, including all endpoints and technical tutorials, can be found at
