candiadate Profile lookup (revised)

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.

OK I found the mapping but did not find all of the mapping. Do you know if I am able to update the "prescreening" section. Background checks, credit checks etc..

When I pulled up the xml mapping, I did not find these values.

Hi jgnguyenATL,

I took a look and I did not see any location for credit checks/background checks in the update API. There are a lot of fields you can update, including custom fields. Do you know where you are storing the checks? If they are custom fields then you may be able to post changes.

If you pull up a client in BH, there is a "PreScreens" tab, I don't think this is a custom tab. Under that tab, there are options to add Background check information & Drug Screen.

Options are as follows:
Background (radiobutton -criminal, credit & other), dropdown - pending & complete, dropdown - Meet & Didn't meet, Date field, Added By & Client Field.

Similiar for Drug Screen.

I would like to send info to a specific candidate, updating this data.

I think that that screen is a custom people template. Each of those can be set up in different ways. I have spoken to support about it and will email them as well. This would be easier if we know your private label.

Hi John,

I spoke to support about the fields and they gave me the field names for the drugtest and the background check and those fields are not used in the profile update.

You may want to take a look at the People Template API and see if you can access via that path.

Can you update the data with the template API?

Hi John,

You can, the API is here: http://www.bullhornstaffing.com/Bullhor ... PITest.cfm I am not positive about those fields but there are several you can update.

Hi John,

I am not sure one is available. I would suggest making a read call to the user you want to update and you should see the output with the IDs you are looking for. Just make sure you have the fields filled in you want to change so you can tell which IDs you are interested in when it returns.
