2627543 - LinkedIn job board activation - Recruiting Posting


  • LinkedIn job board is not available on my Recruiting Posting interface.
  • How can I activate posting on LinkedIn job board in Recruiting Posting?


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Posting


Prior to LinkedIn job board configuration in Recruiting Posting, you need to retrieve your Company ID. This ID is taken from the unique URL of the search results page when you click See All Jobs on your LinkedIn Career Page. This helps to ensure the job(s) are associated with the correct Company Page. Company ID is an actual number.

Once you retrieved the company ID, you can create the configuration in your Recruiting Posting interface and follow these steps:

  1. Go to Manage Recruiting Posting > My Job Boards > LinkedIn
  2. Click "New Configuration"
  3. Enter your Company ID
  4. Click on the button “Associate LinkedIn Contract”.
  5. Select your contract ID linked to your configuration (usually only 1 contract will appear for the vast majority of customer).
  6. Select the default poster for this configuration.
  7. Save your changes.
  8. Repeat for each set of LinkedIn credentials.

If you already have a LinkedIn contract configured, but you need to associate it to a new configuration with a different company ID, use the following steps:

  1. Open the widget by clicking "Associate LinkedIn Contract" and click 'Edit' in the Job Poster field
  2. Delete the current Job Poster
  3. Start typing the name of the job poster again
  4. Once you find the poster and select it, click Save

Please note that it is not possible to perform the above widget configuration in the test (staging/preview) environment, simply because Recruiting Posting doesn't have the access to the test widget of LinkedIn. Therefore, if you click "Associate LinkedIn Contract" from the test environment, you will hit "an error page", which is an expected behavior. There is currently no possibility to perform the "End to End" configuration step of the LinkedIn job board in the test system. You can still add the job board to your test interface by simply clicking "Next", selecting posting profiles and saving.
