Custom Components authCode Parameter

Post by joehcr » Wed May 15, 2019 10:16 am

HI,

In the documentation for custom tabs/actions/cards/menu actions http://bullhorn.github.io/Custom-Tabs-and-Menu-Actions/ it mentions the authCode parameter which is described as:
"An encoded value used by partner applications to authenticate the request (included only for tabs or menu actions configured for a partner application)."
How does this work? Is it static or dynamic? How is it set/generated?

Thanks

-Joe

For future reference for anyone else trying to get the authCode included in the custom tab it does not appear possible to do this without support helping out. You will need someone on the BH support team to add you as a partner on each account you would like to create a custom tab on that sends through the authCode info. That is what is meant by the prerequisites portion of this documentation, otherwise you won't appear in the 'Partner Name' dropdown which then won't send through the authCode: http://bullhorn.github.io/REST-Backed-C ... omponents/
