Hi there,

I am building a UI which should look similar to bullhorn Note and call the Bullhorn REST API to create a Note.
To get the list of fields from Note entity using the below REST API.
https://rest2.bullhornstaffing.com/rest ... =<bh_token>

I did not receive all the fields which I am seeing i the web.

Below are the missed fields
1. Schedule Next Action
2. Additional References
3. Multiple Notes
4. Email Notification
5. Email To Distribution List

Can you please help me to get all the fields which I am seeing in web?

Thanks and Regards
Ramaraj K

Hi There,

I am receiving another strange behavior in the meta fields.

isDeleted, dateLastModified, externalID, etc as readOnly false(All these are readOnly true in Task and Appointment). And also getting some important fields like About, Comments as readOnly true. That means in my interface I am unable to give values to mandatory fields and able to give values for system generated informations.

Please find the attached json files for Note, Task and Appointment.

bh_note.txt

bh_appointment.txt

Please guide me to get things going.


Thanks and Regards

Hello,

I apologize for the delay in a response to this thread. The fields that are missing are not fields that are actually part of the Note entity. All the fields that are on the Note entity can be found on page 163 of this document http://developer.bullhorn.com/sites/def ... TAPI_0.pdf.

All the fields that are missing are actually triggers to perform an action within Bullhorn:
1. Schedule Next Action - This allows the user to trigger either a Task or Appointment screen to follow after the Note
2. Multiple Notes - This tells the system to generate a separate note for each person referenced
3. Email Notification - This triggers our email notification system to send an email to the listed user
4. Email To Distribution List - This triggers and email notification be sent to all members of a specific distribution list

"Additional References" is where the candidate and clientContact information presented on the "Add Note" UI.

If you wish to perform similar actions, you will need to build the triggers and add them to the action selections in your UI.

Thanks!
Jake

Hello,

Thank you for the response.

Can you please clarify about the flag readOnly for the fields isDeleted, dateLastModified - as false and About, Comments as true?

Thanks again,
Ramaraj K

Hello Ramaraj,

None of those fields are flagged as Read-Only. Several of them are not null so some data has to be in them. The about field on notes is the personReference field.

The about and comments fields don't auto fill and are required because they must be specified. You have to tell it what to reference for it to reference a record and what information you want on the record in the comments field.

Fields like isDeleted and dateLastModified have a universal reference point and to make a deleted note is something you could do it just isn't common enough for us to specify that all new notes must be added with that flag. We assume new notes are created are not deleted. DateLastModified is similar in that it populates with the date it was last modified.

Hope this helps,
Colin

Thank you ColinC.!

I understood that these isDeleted and dateLastModified are system generated. But I was received those fields as readOnly true in Task, Appointment and other objects. But not in the Note.

I am trying to reuse the field structure and building UI based on what I am receiving from the meta fields API. So got confused when I get two different values for isDeleted and dateLastModified. Is there any reason for keeping these as editable in Note?

Thanks,
Ramaraj K

Those values are generated by Bullhorn and read-only, don't mind them .
Why do you even need to use the isDeleted value anywhere else than from your query ?

Hi

I am not gonna use them in UI. I am just rendering the fields which are not in readOnly mode.

Using common web page builder to build all of my activities Task, Appointment and Note based on the meta fields. Everything fine for Task and Appointment. All the system generated fields are filtered by readOnly flag.

For Note - I have to write new source code to build the UI with hard coded fields. Meta API for Note entity is unusable now.

Thanks and Regards
Ramaraj
