Before you can establish a connection with ADP, you must contact ADP and ask that they provide you with an OAuth app and its associated credentials.

These credentials can only be obtained from ADP and cannot be retrieved directly.

Setup Guide

Follow these steps to connect ADP to your CData Connect account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the CData Connect dashboard.

  2. Click + Add Connection in the upper-right corner.

  3. Type ADP into the search field, then click the data source name.

  4. On the Basic Settings tab of the new connection, enter a connection name or keep the default name.

  5. If you do not have OAuth configured for your ADP account, contact ADP and obtain the OAuth Client Id and OAuth Client Secret for your account.

  6. Enter the following information in CData Connect:

    • OAuth Client Id—the client Id assigned when you register your ADP account for OAuth.

    • OAuth Client Secret—the client secret assigned when you register your ADP account for OAuth.

    • SSL Client Cert—the certificate provided by ADP during registration.

    • SSL Client Cert Password—(optional) the password for the Client Cert, if it is encrypted.

  7. Set the Use UAT field according to your ADP configuration.

  8. At the top of the CData Connect Add ADP Connection page, click Save & Test.

    • If the connection test succeeds, a message indicates that your connection has been created.

    • If the connection test fails, ensure that you entered your login information correctly with no stray spaces or other characters. Then, try again.
