Delay in showing entries on Candidates List

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:

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.

Delay in showing entries on Candidates List

Post by gokonski » Mon Dec 12, 2011 7:31 am


our client has rised to our attention that candidates that are being parsed from our system into BH are not showing up on Candidates List (as they used to till now).

Have found a post saying something about overnight process:
The quick find is a direct look into the DB, which will be instantaneous. The candidate list and candidate search uses a different index that is not updated immediately by the API (for now).

All updates via the API, are caught by an overnight process.
Is there particular reason why that has changed? Is there a way to change it back, so that entries will show up without 24h delay?

Thanks, Greg
