SmartRecruiters (Beta) connector


The SmartRecruiters (Beta) connector establishes access to SmartRecruiters.


This connector is currently released as a beta version and is available only to select organizations. To participate in the beta program or provide feedback on bugs and enhancements, contact your Customer Success Manager (CSM).

The SmartRecruiters (Beta) connector provides an interface for creating a SmartRecruiters (Beta) connection, the foundation used for generating instances of SmartRecruiters (Beta) activities. These activities, once configured, interact with SmartRecruiters through the connection.

The SmartRecruiters (Beta) connector is accessed from the design component palette's Project endpoints and connectors tab (see Design component palette).

Connector overview

This connector is used to first configure a SmartRecruiters (Beta) connection. Activity types associated with that connection are then used to create instances of activities that are intended to be used as sources (to provide data in an operation) or targets (to consume data in an operation).

Together, a specific SmartRecruiters (Beta) connection and its activities are referred to as a SmartRecruiters endpoint:

Smartrecruiters activity types

  • Query: Retrieves object data from SmartRecruiters and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

  • Create: Creates object data in SmartRecruiters and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Update: Updates object data in SmartRecruiters and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Delete: Deletes object data from SmartRecruiters and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.


This connector is a Connector SDK-based connector, which may be referred to by Jitterbit when communicating changes made to connectors built with the Connector SDK.

Prerequisites and supported API versions

The SmartRecruiters (Beta) connector requires the use of an agent version 10.1 or later. These agent versions automatically download the latest version of the connector when required.

The SmartRecruiters (Beta) connector uses the SmartRecruiters API. Refer to the API documentation for information on the schema nodes and fields.


Smartrecruiters API limitations

The SmartRecruiters (Beta) connector has these issues due to limitations present in the SmartRecruiters API:

  • The SmartRecruiters (Beta) Create activity returns null values for these fields in its response when using the Create object with the Create a new user sub-object:

    • externalData
    • ssoLoginMode
    • name
    • ssoIdentifier
    • regionCode
    • latitude
    • region
    • longitude

    The SmartRecruiters API does not return these fields, but they are present in the response schemas. As a result, the operation returns a Success with Info status.

SmartRecruiters (Beta) connector limitations

The SmartRecruiters (Beta) Query activity returns the error message [{"message":"JSONObject[\"queryRequest\"] not found."}] when a single space is used as the filter in the request's q parameter. Results are returned normally when other filters are used in the q parameter.


If you experience issues with the SmartRecruiters (Beta) connector, these troubleshooting steps are recommended:

  1. Click the Test button in the connection configuration to ensure the connection is successful and to ensure the latest version of the connector is downloaded to the agent (unless using the Disable Auto Connector Update organization policy).

  2. Check the operation logs for any information written during execution of the operation.

  3. Enable operation debug logging (for cloud agents or for private agents) to generate additional log files and data.

  4. If using private agents, you can enable connector verbose logging for this connector using this specific configuration entry of logger name and level:

    <logger name="org.jitterbit.connector.smartrecruiters" level="DEBUG"/>
  5. If using private agents, you can check the agent logs for more information.
