Connect Your Existing JazzHR and ADP Accounts

You've recruited successfully and made the right hire. But now what? Thanks to JazzHR's integration with ADP, you can now seamlessly move candidates into the next stage of their lifecycle as an employee.

Link your existing Run Powered by ADP or ADP Workforce Now account with JazzHR using JazzHR's Data Connector. This free integration allows you to export candidates, manage users and enable single sign-on between the accounts.

This article covers:

Setting Up the Integration

Start the integration process in your JazzHR account. Note that you must be a Super Admin in JazzHR and an Admin in ADP in order to connect these accounts.

Before beginning, be sure to copy your JazzHR API key. You'll need this once in ADP. Here's how:

  • Click Settings.
  • Click Integrations.
  • Copy the string of letters/numbers from the "API Key" field at the top of the page.


Once you've copied your API Key, scroll to the "ADP" section on this same page. From there:

  • Click Connect.


This will take you to the ADP Marketplace. From here:

  • Click on the JazzHR application in Marketplace.
  • Click Editions and Pricing.
  • Click Purchase.

Note that this integration is free, and you will not be billed upon purchasing.


Once in the purchase process, enter your API key in the "Product Settings" screen:


After purchasing, you'll land on the "My Apps" page within ADP. From here:

  • Click on the JazzHR application block.


  • Click Allow to enable consent of the integration.

Your accounts are now linked, and you'll be automatically signed in to JazzHR.

Exporting Candidates from JazzHR

Once you've connected your accounts, start exporting new hires to ADP from JazzHR. Here's how:

  • Click Candidates.

  • Click the caret drop-down next to the candidate's workflow stage.

Once you've exported a candidate(s), head into ADP to view and manage their employee profiles. Run Powered by ADP customers will see new exports on their dashboard as part of the "To Do" list:
