Search on candidate status

Post by alipscomb1 » Mon Oct 30, 2017 2:08 pm

I'm doing a candidate search with this api call:

Code: Select all

https://rest33.bullhornstaffing.com/rest-services/1jv9u9/search/Candidate?BhRestToken={{token}}&query=isDeleted:0 AND NOT status:Placed AND NOT status:DNU AND NOT status:Archive AND NOT status:Duplicate&fields=id,firstName,lastName,primarySkills,dateAdded&start=0&count=10
The total number of candidates returned is higher than it should be. When I filter the candidates in the BH Candidate list, I get about a third less than I get using the search API.
Why is that?

Hi alipscomb1,

I'm Dan with Bullhorn Support and I'll be assisting you on this issue.

On the face of it this call looks normal to me. I'd like to do some specific troubleshooting on your environment if that would be okay. I will private message you with details.

Warm regards,
Dan

Hi alipscomb1,

It looks like I was able to identify your user and corporate environment so I won't be needing that direct message. I hopped in and had a look, and ran the following API call:

https://rest33.bullhornstaffing.com/res ... sDeleted:0 AND NOT status:Placed AND NOT status:DNU AND NOT status:Archive AND NOT status:Duplicate&fields=id,firstName,lastName,primarySkills,dateAdded&start=0&count=10&BhRestToken={{token}}

This returned 96,415 candidates.

I then ran the following search in Bullhorn. After clearing all filters, I clicked the 'search' box, selected 'status' then 'exclude' and excluded Placed, DNU, Archive, Duplicate. This also returned 96,415 candidates.

It looks like there were some additional list level filters that were in place and further filtering results on the front end.

Warm regards,
Dan
