Job details onto php website

Post by scdk » Wed Dec 12, 2012 6:42 am

I am building a website and have been asked to integrate it into Bullhorn so that we can display job details onto the website.

I found a page within the doc to set up bullhorn api with php ... es_and_PHP but this requires Eclipse. Is there sample code without Eclipse using just php to conect to bullhorn and grab the job details?

From my experience, not really. I'm afraid that you might have a bit of work ahead of you. You will need to have invested some time and energy in learning XML-SOAP concepts and mastering the quirks of the PHP SOAP implementation (

If you're already comfortable with both, then you should be able to piece together what you need quite readily the Web API documentation. (

If not, then there's not much that you're going to be able to accomplish without putting in some time studying and experimenting. You'll be working with very object oriented code -- these are inherently OO concepts -- and you'll need to approach your task from an object oriented perspective.

Once you're comfortable with XML-SOAP, the operation/object level of the transaction will be (or at least seem) relatively effortless.

Provided you have your credentials, you can make use of the following snippet.

Code: Select all

$params = array( 'trace' => 1, 'soap_version' => SOAP_1_1);
$BHClient = new SoapClient("",$params);

$username = "UserName";
$password = "Password";
$apiKey = "xxxxxx";

$session_request = new stdClass();
$session_request->username = $username;
$session_request->password = $password;
$session_request->apiKey = $apiKey;
$API_start = $BHClient->startSession($session_request);
$API_return= $API_start->return;
$API_session = $API_return->session;
The $API_session will be the session string that you'll need to pass for the other operations.
