When authenticating, is there a parameter we can set to programmatically "Agree" to the ToS?

We still haven't been able to solve this - any updates, Bullhorn team?

I could see this as crazy frustrating.

I just received my credentials and finally got everything figured out for candidate entity management. I do NOT have a TOS to approve when retrieving auth code.

Notice on this page: http://developer.bullhorn.com/articles/getting_started ("Get an authorization code", Step 2) - They imply that there is ALWAYS a TOS to approve - this is not the case - it has to be enabled. I confirmed this with support via Chat.

I'd open a ticket with them and tell them to disable it if they cannot provide a way to bypass.

Alternatively, use the cURL command they provide - thou, I suspect you've tried that already.

Bullhorn team, it's been 3 months. Can we please get an update?

Mavieo - we usually do exactly that (open tickets and ask them to disable ToS), but it's annoying for both parties.

Hello Kazemi,

I apologize for the delayed response.

The Terms of Service is automatically enabled whenever a new set of API credentials is generated, and Bullhorn does not provide a programmatic way to bypass this authorization process. The Terms of Service can be exempted on a one off basis, but such a request must be submitted via a Bullhorn Support Ticket, and be accompanied by a written authorization request from an Account Contact at that company. Upon receiving written authorization, the request would be reviewed for approval by our support management team, and if approval is granted, the Terms of Service could be disabled.
