1. Candidates are placed in the Background Check Status and Candidate Application Data are automatically pulled by a middleware application like Boomi or HCI.


2. The Middleware application will pull application information from certain statuses. In this sample, the Middleware application is listening for applications under 'Background Check' status and those that are using Job Application template ID 143 (JobApplication$143).

JobApplication For HireRight - 1 [Execute] Succeed to execute SFAPI Query [queryString=SELECT address,applicationLocale,candidateId,city,contactEmail,country,cust_HireRight_OrderId,cust_HireRight_status,custom_prefLanguage,firstName,
homePhone,id,jobAppLocale,jobReqId,lastName,middleName,state,statusItem,zip FROM JobApplication$143 WHERE (statusItem = 'Background Check'), queryParameters=[SFParameter [name=maxRows, value=200]]]

3. The Application Data pulled by the Middleware application will be sent to the third-party Background Check vendor.


Note: This is a sample payload that we sent to HireRight through Boomi. The payload contents may be different for other vendors or will depend on what fields were mapped by your Implementation Partner.

4. The Background Check Vendor will respond with the Background Check results and sends it back to the middleware application.


6. The Middleware returns the information to SuccessFactors and SuccessFactors will display it in the Background Check portlet.
