[SOLVED] Candidate Capture API Not Working

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.

[SOLVED] Candidate Capture API Not Working

Post by JSW » Fri Jan 28, 2011 5:56 pm

Is the Candidate Capture API broken? After submitting the Candidate Capture form from our website, I receive a Success message (Thank you. Your application has been processed.), but the candidate does not get added to the system. I'm assuming this because I do not see the new user when doing a search at http://sl1api.bullhornstaffing.com/Bull ... rchAPI.cfm.

I have tried to access the form directly on the Bullhorn site, but when I visit http://www.bullhornstaffing.com/Bullhor ... idates.cfm, I get the following message.
We're sorry, but there was an problem with your request. Please try again. If the problem continues, you can check http://status.bullhorn.com for up to the minute system status, including notices from our support and operations team.

If you require assistance with this issue, please contact Bullhorn Support using The Bullhorn Resource Center available under the Support menu.
I am using a private label id of 3221.

JSW,

The candidate capture page is just a mockup of how to use the API.

Can you post the userID of the candidate that you cannot access, I will check to see what is set incorrectly.

Hi Andrew,

I found the problem; Our form was not setting the profileType to Applicant, so the submissions were being stored as Contacts, instead of Candidates/Applicants.

Thanks for your time.
