How to check if an application was indeed submitted

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 check if an application was indeed submitted

Post by nicu.danila » Mon Oct 11, 2010 5:21 pm

Hi,

I'm submitting an application using the JobApplications.cfm.
On a success case, it usually returns "<!-- process job response -->".
However, sometimes it doesn't work correctly. Here is a response I received by setting the "notify" field:

Code: Select all

My question: Is there an API that I could use to check if the application was submitted? Something like an Activity List, for example?

Nicu,

There is no status page, but if you knew a pertinent detail, like the job number, you could lookup the submissions for that job using a lookup API. The test page can be found here: http://www.bullhornstaffing.com/bullhor ... MLTest.cfm
