2224323 - Is it possible to view the Candidate source field via the SFSF APIs?


Is it possible to extract the Candidate Source field when using SF API?

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

The source field (e.g 'Forwarded') is an internal field and is not accessible via the SFSF APIs, hence this data cannot be retrieved via the API calls.

However the data for this field can be retrieved using Adhoc Reports and below are the steps to generate that report.

  1. Login to SFSF Instance
  2. Go to Reports -> Adhoc Reports
  3. Click on Create New Report -> Recruiting V2
  4. Enter the report name and then navigate to columns and select Application
  5. Enable the Source and Source Details checkboxes

If you wish to see the Candidate Source field considered for inclusion in the SFSF APIs, we strongly encourage you to submit an enhancement request to our Product Management team.
