ADP Workforce Now

Connecting to ADP requires several pieces of information.
Secondly you need to generate a private key and a signing request (these are two files), submit the signing request file to ADP, and get a signed 'certificate' file back. This is called a Certificate Signing Request (CSR), and the process is documented here:
ADP Developer Resources
ADP Certificate Signing Request instructions
The ADP CSR process document is quite comprehensive. It's broken into three main steps.
  1. 1.
    Generate two files (a .key and a .csr file) using a command line tool called OpenSSL
  2. 2.
    Submit only the .csr file to ADP
  3. 3.
    Receive a .pem file back from ADP
If you're unfamiliar with working with command line tools like OpenSSL, you may need the help from someone in your IT team.
It's very important that you keep the .key file safe. You should only send the .csr file to ADP. You will need the .key file later when you connect to Trelica.
To connect Trelica to ADP you will then:
  • enter the Client ID and Client Secret into Trelica
  • paste in the contents of the .key and the .pem file into Trelica
