Job Submission Status Change History

Post by cirilomegg » Fri Jul 15, 2011 12:15 pm

Hi,

I am wondering if there is any way I can get (using the API web services) the history of status changes on a job submission so I can track the steps (and especially when) the job submission has been through.

Thanks,

Cirilo

Hi Cirilo,

Bullhorn's web services provide a facility to retrieve the current state of data and make changes to the data, there is no facility to retrieve historical information about changes to entities. However, we do expose event operations that allow a user of Bullhorn's web services to subscribe to topics that they are interested in. For instance, you would want to create topic for job submissions with an event type of updated. Every time an event is generated in the application that meets that criteria, it will put the event on a queue for you. You can then call into the application at a later date to pull recent events from that queue.

So, you will need to perform the initial steps to retrieve all of the data that you are interested in order to get the current state of your data. Then, set up events so that you will be notified of any changes to the data. You can view the following links for more information about events.

Please let me know if anything is not clear or if you have any further questions.

Hi Jon,

I have used the events to get the job submission data and I have kept only the most up to date version of the record. The problem I have is that I can't get for existing records so basically I won't have historical data for the last year or so. I'll have for new records though.

Thanks for your reply,

Cirilo

Hello Cirilo,

You should be able to use the query operation coupled with the find operation to query for entities that you currently do not have tracked and pull their dtos into your application. Please let me know if you would like help with these operations.
