Vanta and Factorial

  • Updated

Factorial allows customers to connect tools like Vanta using an API Token. By connecting your Factorial account with Vanta, Vanta is able to make API calls as the app, allowing you to connect to find people and use onboarding/offboarding dates from your HR system.




  • Vanta leverages Merge, a third-party platform, to pull in your data from Factorial. See their documentation for details on the API interactions used.




  • Navigate to the Integrations Page in Vanta and locate the Factorial connector. Click on Connect.


  • A pop-up will display letting you know that we use a third-party platform to pull in your data from Factorial.



  • A popup module is displayed, allowing you to review the requested permissions. Click on continue after reviewing the affected read data.



  • After hitting next you will then be prompted to open a window to Factorials website and sign in with an administrator user.



  • After logging in on Factorials website you should be redirected back to Vanta and you should see a screen that says Merge is setting up the integration with Vanta.



  • You should then see a "Connected to Factorial" message after a few moments.



  • On the next screen the connection window will confirm the permissions are available for the user that connected the integration.



  • If the user can successfully access the required data, it will then on the next screen show you a date scoping window. this will determine how far back Vanta will import users from. It is important to at least set the date to the beginning of your audit period if in audit.



  • Once you hit continue you will be presented with a "Factorial Connected!" screen, from here you can configure additional scope on the users that are imported if required.
