Your error message is pretty straightforward , rest.bullhornstaffing.com is only used to login onto the API.
When you ask for your BhRestToken, you receive an URL to the closest BullHorn server/cluster that you must use for all requests.

Hi Mrswebsolutions,

This is Mike from Bullhorn Support. Lokuber is correct that the rest.bullhornstaffing.com address is only used for logging into the REST API.

Once you're logged in with the access token (this step is noted here: http://developer.bullhorn.com/articles/ ... first_call), you'll generate a "BhRestToken" and a "restUrl". The restUrl determines what URL you should be using to consctruct your query, and the BhRestToken is required to return the data.

For example, if I logged into the REST API and it returned the following:

Code: Select all

{    "BhRestToken": "4f63b538-e49e-4011-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx",
    "restUrl": https://rest23.bullhornstaffing.com/rest-services/123xyz/}
I would construct the above URL to use rest23, so that it's

Code: Select all

where "123xyz" is the corpID which was returned, and "567" is the ID of the clientCorporation you would like to return.

I hope this helps moving forward. The rest of the steps for getting started are notated here:

Kind Regards,
