Online Attendance GIRITON offers REST API for integration with other systems.
You can conveniently download data from GIRITON to other systems. Such as hours worked, human resources or a list of vacations. You can also upload data from other systems to GIRITON. Such as time spent on individual projects or new users in human resources.
How to generate REST Api token
To communicate with Giriton’s REST api, it is necessary to generate a so-called “REST API token” which serves as a password during communication. You can generate a new REST API token in Giriton web application in Paired devices agenda by clicking the + REST API token button. Name it appropriately after the addition of a new token. For example, “Integration with the warehouse system”. You can display it in the format yourcompany.xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx by clicking the eye icon in the “REST API Token”.
Attention! Treat this token as carefully as the password. Using the REST Api token, it is possible to read data or write data to your company’s account. Personal data may be leaked if your token falls into the wrong hands.
We recommend checking or adjusting permissions for each api token in 3 Permissions card. You can set for each token what can be done in the system when using it. For example, you can generate a single token that you only want to use to check the list of people in the workplace. You only grant permission to view attendance to such a token. The second token will be used to add people to Giriton so you will grant View Human Resources and Edit Human Resources permissions to it. If you use a token to try to make a REST Api call to which the given token doesn’t have permission, the call will fail.
