Symptom

Information on Third Party Job Posting and Job Scraping

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management

Cause

We do not formally support screen scraping. While some clients have given approval to third parties to scrape our site, we do not offer guidance, cannot guarantee it will not break and will not promise to fix it if it does break. We formally advise against using screen scraping with the SF RCM tool.

Resolution


The recommended way to provide job postings to a third party is through the Recruiting Marketing (RMK) tool, which can automatically distribute jobs to all relevant locations. For more information about Recruiting Marketing, please contact Customer Success.

It is possible to utilize web services to build your own XML extract from our tool and pass it to a third party, or to purchase a Boomi license and contract Professional Services time to have this built custom. For more information on setting up web services, please contact Customer Success.

There is a standard pre-packaged XML export for posted jobs; this is not configurable, the contents will NOT be changed upon request and in the medium/long term this will probably be deprecated, so while it is technically available today it is not advisable to rely on this feature as a long term solution. For more information on setting up the XML export, please contact Customer Success.
