Connecting Rippling to Drata allows for automated checks and evidence collection to provide details on personnel hire and separation dates as well as their employment status.


Make sure you have admin access to your company's Rippling account.

NOTE: You must have purchased Rippling's 'App Management Package' to utilize this app. Sync with your Rippling rep if you need assistance in adding it.

At this time, Drata’s device compliance checks using the Rippling connection, checks device settings directly or the report that’s generated by Rippling about device settings. That said, Rippling does not share device details about auto-applying security patches configuration, so evidence for that check must be manually uploaded. Admins can upload evidence for employees from the Personnel page or give the ability for employees to manually upload their evidence through myDrata by configuring your Internal Security settings.


Follow these instructions to connect Rippling to Drata:

1. Click on your company's name in the lower left corner.

2. Click "Connections" from that menu.

3. Click the "Connect" button for the Rippling integration.

The slide-out panel will provide step-by-step instructions (see below).

Selecting the "Use Rippling MDM" option will also turn allow the connection to sync MDM data from Rippling, in addition to HRIS fields.

Within Rippling you will be asked the following:

  • Who should automatically get an account with Drata when they join the company?, choose Everyone including 1099 contractors should get an account

  • If an employee (or consultant) matches the access rules, when should they get access to Drata?, choose As soon as they've signed their offer letter or agreement.
