Data Access for the Employee Data API


This article explains all necessary settings for using 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, and the relevant text document will open within seconds.

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


You will then have the option to define individual attributes which you would like to transmit via API. To do so, navigate to the tab Access > Edit and select any number of attributes from the list of options.


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