You connect to your Bullhorn REST account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Bullhorn REST connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.


To connect to your Bullhorn REST account and create a DataSet, you must have the following:

  • A Bullhorn client ID

  • A Bullhorn client secret

To obtain credentials, reach out to your Bullhorn representative.

Connecting to Your Bullhorn REST Account

This section enumerates the options in the Credentials and Details panes in the Bullhorn REST Connector page. The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Credentials Pane

This pane contains fields for entering credentials to connect to your Bullhorn REST account. The following table describes what is needed for each field:  



Client ID

Once you have entered valid Bullhorn REST credentials, you can use the same account any time you go to create a new Bullhorn REST DataSet. You can manage connector accounts in the Accounts tab in the Data Center. For more information about this tab, see Managing User Accounts for Connectors.

You can use specific or relative dates in your query.

Specific Dates

For specific dates you should use a yyyymmdd format. For example, createdDate:[20160401 TO 20160402] would query where the createdDate is between Apr 1, 2016 and Apr 2, 2016. For date and time use a format such as 2016042110000000. That would be Apr 21, 2016 10:00AM. For open-ended ranges you can use the *. For example, updatedAt:[20160401 TO *] would account for anything greater than Apr 1, 2016.

Relative dates

The connector supports relative dates. For example, dateAdded:[today-7 TO today] would query where the dateAdded field is between seven days ago and today.

For a list of searchable fields, run the "Search Metadata" report.
