Prior to this enhancement, some customers have been unable to utilize Cornerstone’s APIs for global rollouts because there was no way to guarantee that employee data (especially EMEA employee data) has not been accessed by any systems outside of the EMEA region. While this has been possible to do from an integrator's side by filtering on the organizational unit (OU), it has not been possible to enforce from a governance perspective, forcing some customers to limit their API rollouts.
This enhancement enables customers to constrain Transcript and Task API access in the API as it is in the system. This enables customers to use Cornerstone’s APIs in a more robust way, by enabling third-party integrators who are outside of their organization and should not otherwise have root access to all employee data, to be able to leverage the data they need for their solutions. Support for constraints should allow for tighter controls around employee data when using Transcript and Task API.
API Explorer Documentation
Organizations must submit a case to Global Customer Support to enable this functionality. Additional documentation will be available in the API Explorer upon release of this new API.
