Subscription ids and how to create one

Post by jeffsacco »

Hello all

This is my first post to the forum. I am trying to get some guidance on the GET /event call. The API documentation references a subscriptionId as part of the call and I just cannot figure out how to create this subscriptionid. Is there another end point in the API I need to call to create this subscriptionId, are there some pre-built subscriptionId's?

Any help or guidance would be appreciated with some step by step instructions.

Thanks in advance.

Hi jeffsacco,

You need to create the subscription first before running the GET call to retrieve any events queued up to that subscription.

Using a PUT call, you can create a subscription by passing the following URI: ... ED,DELETED

In this example, "Abcde" would become the subscriptionId, so you can name it yourself when you run the PUT call. Note: names and eventTypes parameters must be comma separated. This example would be setting up a subscription to just listen for Candidate events, but you can use one subscriptionId to listen to mulitple entities.

A successful PUT /event call will return a response like this:

Code: Select all

{'lastRequestId': 0,
'subscriptionId': 'abcde',
'createdOn': 1335285871323,
'jmsSelector': "JMSType='ENTITY' AND BhCorpId=44 AND
BhEntityName='Candidate' AND BhEntityEventType IN
Once the subscription is created, you can use the GET /event call to retrieve events. For further information on both of these calls, please refer to the REST reference documentation starting on page 35: ... TAPI_0.pdf
