HTTP 503 for Add/Update User and Attach File

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.

HTTP 503 for Add/Update User and Attach File

Post by shuddleston » Wed Feb 15, 2012 10:17 am

Hi,

I'm seeing HTTP 503 responses for the following API calls: AddUserProfileAPI, UpdateProfileAPI and AttachFile. Started around 8:38 EST today and continues.

Log file excerpts below for reference. Note times are in GMT.

Code: Select all

Is anyone else seeing this? Other API operations have been find. For example, I can seach jobs using the web service API without issue.

Thanks,

Scott
