2976559 - Error when posting first job on 51job (API) - Recruiting Posting


The connection with 51job (API) job board has been established, but the first job I posted is not published, and an error is displayed.


SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Posting

Reproducing the Issue

  1. I added 51job (API) to my Recruiting Posting interface and the connection has been established
  2. I post my first job, but it's not published on the job board
  3. When checking the job status table, there is an error displayed


The probable cause is that the job board specific field Companies / departments is not configured or filled.


Once you post your first job on 51job (API), the job board will return a file with the list of your companies/departments that need to be set up in Recruiting Posting. A new job board specific field needs to be created and filled before a job is successfully published on the job board. The creation of this specific field is handled by Recruiting Posting Support team. It can be part of the initial activation process (see SAP Knowledge Base Article 2651162), or you can raise a new ticket once you start posting on the job board.
