Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Manage Recruiting Posting > select Seek or SeekNZ job boards
  2. Click in Brand Template * (Autocomplete) or Advertisement Type * (Autocomplete)  
  3. A pop-up error message "We're sorry but we can't process this request." or a wrong pick list is displayed


"No", or incorrect Hirer ID credentials are filled in Seek job board configuration.


To begin you must reach out to Seek to acquire the accurate Hirer ID for your job board configuration, either with Seek or SeekNZ.

It's important to note that only Seek can provide these IDs. Additionally, make sure that the posting profile you're using is configured correctly.

Once you have the necessary credentials from the job board and the activation process is complete on Seek's side, the administrator will update the Seek configuration in Recruiting Posting (see SAP Knowledge Base Article 2726474).

If the correct Hirer ID is entered, the system will connect to Seek's API, and the relevant list of values that are available for your contract will be displayed in in Brand Template and Advertisement Type fields.

Note that the Hirer ID has been added to the configuration since the migration in May 2022 and all Seek configurations created before, need to be updated.
