2433914 - OData API to trigger Invite to Apply

Symptom

Would like to know how to use OData API to trigger invite to apply

Environment

SuccessFactors BizX

SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Resolution

Basic Configuration:

1. In provisioning ->Company settings -> Web services -> Uncheck Disable OData API and 
2. Login to application, in Admin tools ->Administrative Privileges under Integration tools enable Access to all OData APIs 
(necessary add candidate to invite to Apply and to view respective odata dictionary function import/enitity details)
3. Make sure the email triggers are enabled either in Edit status configuration page or in Edit Triggers page for "Invite to Apply" status 
for both external/internal and agency candidates.

Once these basic configuration steps are configured, RCM user can use the below example of the Odata API Call.

Syntax:

https://<environment- domain>/odata/v2/inviteToApply?jobReqId=<<job req Ids>>&candidateIds=' <<candidate IDs who are already in forwarded status>>'

Eg: https://qacand-api-tomcat.lab-rot.ondemand.com/odata/v2/inviteToApply?jobReqId=20541L&candidateIds='18884,"12345'

where '18884' and '12345" are candidate IDs  who are already in Forwarded status for the job req 20541L to "InvitetoApply" status.

As an appropriately permission-ed recruiting user (that also uses an external CRM vendor, who has used OData APIs to create a job applicant in RCM) will have the ability to trigger the 'Invite to Apply' functionality through oData.
