Getting the File Id after using the FIleAttachAPI

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.

Getting the File Id after using the FIleAttachAPI

Post by pjjeevan » Fri Apr 08, 2011 7:13 pm

I attached a resume to a candidate profile using the ... chFile.cfm. I need to get the File ID of the file attached. I confirmed that the file is attached using the FileList API. When I print the response it just says 1. I am using PHP-CURL to do the attach process.I need this ID as there can be multiple files for a candidate.

The API found here should give you the userWorkFileID, which you can use. ... PITest.cfm
