How to Filter Jobs by Category ID

Have a question about Bullhorn's HTTP based APIs? You've found the right place.

API Update [posted on December 13, 2012]:

This version of the Bullhorn APIs should no longer be used.

All new work should be done using Bullhorn's REST or Web Services APIs. For more information please visit: http://developer.bullhorn.com/documentation

Bullhorn REST API provides a simpler and faster way for developers to build applications that interact with the Bullhorn platform and is used by Bullhorn Inc. to develop features of the Bullhorn ATS/CRM application.

Of the BullhornSTAFFING HTTP API interfaces listed below, our analysis shows that the following are most commonly used by developers:

Resume Parsing API
Published Job Data (XML)
The interface to these will continue to work as is because Bullhorn will replace the back end to use REST API. The URLs for these 2 specific APIs may change in the 2nd half of 2013; developers may require to update their applications to use the new URLs.

How to Filter Jobs by Category ID

Post by JSW » Tue May 17, 2011 11:23 pm

We have a job search form on our website that has working filters for title, state, and some other fields. We would like to add a filter by top-level category. What string/field name should we put in the 'filterColumnX' field if we use the category ID in the 'filterX' field? We have tried externalCategoryID, but it returns an empty result.

We are posting the form data to http://www.bullhornstaffing.com/Bullhor ... ngsXML.cfm.

The private label id is 3221 and we have been testing the search feature with category id 305255 (Sales / Marketing).

Thanks for your help.

JSW,

Sorry for the late reply, you can filter by the field "category" and use the name of the category.
