Generate Password for API Account

Post by jshuster »

We have a customer whose Bullhorn ATS we'd like to integrate into our site. The client provided us with the following set of credentials:

• Client ID
• Client Secret
• API username

As you can see, there was no API password provided. In fact, the customer explicitly omitted the password and instructed us to generate one.

My question is this: how do I go about generating a password for this account?

This is Grant with Bullhorn Support,

The customer (User of the Bullhorn ATS) must provide you with the API Password as that is created in-app (Bullhorn ATS). The customer creates the password for security reasons. And if they ever need to break that API connection/Shut it off, all they would need to do is alter the password and not tell their developer.

Thank you,

Bullhorn Support
