Cornerstone's custom authentication framework, Session Token Service (STS), will be deprecated in February 2020 and will be fully retired and unavailable in February 2021. During the deprecation phase, Cornerstone will stop supporting STS. The STS endpoint will still be available during the deprecation phase, but Cornerstone will no longer address any defects or enhance this endpoint. Any requests to the endpoint will fail starting February 2021, when STS is fully retired.
Organizations will need to modify their code for existing integrations that use Cornerstone's API and switch to OAuth 2.0 from STS by February 2021. This only impacts Cornerstone's RESTful APIs, which includes the following:
- Cornerstone's Foundational APIs (i.e. Cornerstone REST services)
- Reporting API
- Employee API (i.e. Cornerstone Core/CHR services)
- Express Class API
- Job Application API
This page displays a list of available APIs (web services).
All API technical specifications are available within the Edge API Explorer. To access the API Explorer, go to.
|PERMISSION NAME||PERMISSION DESCRIPTION||CATEGORY|
|Edge Develop - API Explorer||Grants access to the API Explorer, which provides access to help documentation for various API applications.||Edge|
Additional permissions may be required for each API. These permissions are listed in the API specification within the Edge API Explorer.
|Reporting||The Reporting API is a public facing web service that allows clients read-only access to their Cornerstone data via the Real Time Data Warehouse (RTDW). It adheres to the OData protocol (http://www.odata.org/) and dynamically adjusts to reflect any client's schema. Currently, it allows access to all the reporting views in the report schema (report.vw_rpt_*), which are the data source for custom reporting in the Cornerstone application.|
