Is it possible to close or reopen a job requisition using SFAPI?

  1. Use an UPDATE operation on the JobRequisition Entity.
  2. In the payload request include Job Req ID, Job Req Status and Job Req Internal Status.
    For Example:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <s:Envelope xmlns:s="">
    <s:Header />
    <s:Body xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="">
    <update xmlns="">
    <urn:type xmlns:urn="">JobRequisition$3</urn:type>
    <status xmlns="">Open</status>
    <jobReqStatus xmlns="">1</jobReqStatus>
  3. If you are closing a job requisition, include jobCloseDate.

Note: You can only re-open the requisition based on previous jobReqStatus. If the requisition is still in pre-approved state when it was closed, you can only re-open it in the pre-approved state.
