Integrate with Worksection: API, OAuth2, SDK

Hel­lo, Friends!
We con­tin­ue to tell you about the big win­ter update of Worksection.

We have some great news! Now, you can enhance the capa­bil­i­ties of Work­sec­tion by cre­at­ing your own inte­gra­tions. And, most impor­tant­ly, we’ve made this process as easy as possible!

To ensure the con­nec­tion between your ser­vice and ours, we have improved the API and imple­ment­ed an OAuth2 autho­riza­tion method. This autho­riza­tion mech­a­nism is fast and secure, allow­ing you to per­form actions and receive data on behalf of a spe­cif­ic user, tak­ing into account their per­mis­sions and access levels.


To exchange data between ser­vices, we imple­ment­ed Web­hooks. Read about this update separately.

OAuth2 and a sim­ple exam­ple of what it is

OAuth is like a pass. Instead of hav­ing to enter your pass­word every time on a dif­fer­ent site, you use that pass from anoth­er ser­vice. This is con­ve­nient because it allows oth­er ser­vices to access your data with­out requir­ing you to share your password.

For exam­ple, when you log in to your favorite online store through your Google account, it imme­di­ate­ly retrieves your email, user­name, etc.



Now you can add the abil­i­ty to autho­rize through Work­sec­tion, not only on your web­site but also in your store or web service.

Read more about how to cre­ate and cus­tomize your own inte­gra­tion in our FAQ sec­tion.

Why OAuth2 is right for you

If you have your own prod­uct and want to devel­op its inte­gra­tion with Work­sec­tion, you need to go through a series of steps:

  • Cre­ate your appli­ca­tion in Worksection.
  • Send the user to the OAuth page.
  • The user will con­firm that he/​she pro­vid­ing access to his/​her own data, and you will receive autho­riza­tion data.
  • Use them to exchange data with our API!


Who will ben­e­fit from it:
  • Prod­uct or ser­vice com­pa­nies can ben­e­fit from direct inte­gra­tion with Work­sec­tion for their cus­tomers and users.
  • Teams with their own soft­ware solu­tions can con­nect inte­gra­tion with Work­sec­tion with­in the orga­ni­za­tion and imple­ment addi­tion­al features.


  • We took care of devel­op­ers and cre­at­ed an API SDK 
  • We have also devel­oped a library for con­ve­nient work with OAuth2

If you don’t have the abil­i­ty to set up the inte­gra­tion your­self, we have an addi­tion­al option. Now you can use a use­ful inte­gra­tion with Zapi­er that we have cre­at­ed with the help of updat­ed tools. You can learn more about how to con­nect Work­sec­tion to Zapi­er in our arti­cle.

Stay tuned for our next updates.
