With Checkr modules in Make, you can create candidates and background check invitations, watch for events, and retrieve and/or search for candidates, invitations, nodes, packages, and reports.

To use Checkr with Make, you must have a verified Checkr account. For more information, refer to the Welcome to Checkr guide. You can connect to both Checkr staging accounts and production accounts.

Refer to the Checkr API documentation for a list of available endpoints.

Connect Checkr to Make

To establish the connection:

  1. Log in to your Make account, add a Checkr module to your scenario, and click Create a connection.

    Note: If you add a module with an instant tag, click Create a webhook, then Create a connection.

  2. Optional: In the Connection name field, enter a name for the connection.

  3. Select whether or not to connect to the Sandbox environment.

  4. Optional: Click Show advanced settings and enter your client credentials. Refer to the Partnering with Checkr guide for more information. When creating a custom app, use the following Redirect URI:

  5. Click Save.

  6. If prompted, log in to your customer account, select the customer account to connect to, and confirm access.

    Note: If you receive Error: Account can't connect to itself, Account can't connect a partner to another partner account when connecting using client credentials, go to your Checkr Partner dashboard, ensure that you are logged out, and try to establish the connection again.

You have successfully established the connection. You can now edit your scenario and add more Checkr modules. If your connection requires reauthorization at any point, follow the connection renewal steps here.

Build Checkr Scenarios

After connecting the app, you can perform the following actions:

  • Watch Events

    Note: This module triggers when an invitation or report event is sent via API. It is not possible to trigger this module when invitation or report events are created within your Checkr Dashboard.

    Checkr imposes a limit of two webhook URLs per test or production environment. See more information in the Checkr Webhook documentation.

  • Create a Candidate

    Note: If you receive the following error: The operation failed with an error. [404] work location doesn't exist, ensure that the location input in the module's Country fields matches the location selected when creating the candidate's package.
