2651162 - 51job (API) job board activation - Recruiting Posting


  • 51job (API) job board is not available on my Recruiting Posting Interface.
  • How can I activate posting on 51job (API) job board through Recruiting Posting?


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Posting


Prior to 51job (API) job board configuration by Recruiting Posting support team, following activation steps need to be performed:

  1. Ensure that a contract is signed with 51job
  2. Ensure that all fees that 51job might apply for broadcasting via 3rd party provider are paid and collect the API Access token

    Please note that Recruiting Posting is not involved in the process of fees application and contract negotiation that 51job job board can have. This action is between customer and job board.

  3. Once contract details settled, please raise an SAP Launchpad ticket to request the activation

Once the connection is established and credentials updated, you need to post a first job in order to finalize the configuration. Based on this first posting, an additional job board specific field Companies / departments needs to be created and completed before jobs can be successfully published (see SAP Knowledge Base Article 2976559).

Note that these activation steps apply only on the production environment. If you want to have 51job (API) job board added only to your test or development instance linked to the Recruiting Posting staging account, you can raise a ticket with the request even before signing the contract with the job board.
