Problem with Merging Candidates

Post by hnmsystems » Tue Jan 15, 2019 5:04 pm

Hey guys,

I'm currently trying to upload a .csv file with candidate information into BH. Some of the existing candidate info in BH contains candidate information that is missing an email address. When performing the import of the .csv file, the email addresses won't merge and populate with the existing candidate profiles. If you can tell me how to do this, so that I'm not having to manually enter email addresses for thousands of candidates, that'd be great. Thank you!

Hi hnmsystems,

The custom import tool in Bullhorn is not designed to update existing records. You can however do this with REST by first querying the name or other identifying detail of the candidate with a GET /search call then updating the email with a POST /entity call.
