HRIS Link and Job Admin assignment

HRIS Link uses role_id on your HRIS report to determine which Job Admin permission level a user should be assigned on each imported job's hiring team.

To find role_ids, you can use the Harvest API endpoint GET: List user roles which will retrieve a full list of your organization's Job Admin levels. In the response, id is what you should use for role_id on your hiring team roles. Check out the example below:

Example request

GET: List user roles

curl -X GET \
-H 'Authorization: Basic *******' \

Example response

"id": 4730,
"type": "job_admin",
"name": "Standard"
"id": 4731,
"type": "job_admin",
"name": "Private"

In this example, the id 4370 could be used to assign someone Job Admin: Standard permissions on a job using HRIS Link's role_ids.

Once you know your role IDs, use them to assign Job Admin permission levels on your HRIS report on the hiring_manager_role_id, recruiter_role_id, and sourcer_role_id fields.

To improve scalability, we recommend limiting your Job Admin levels to match each role on the hiring team. For example, Job Admin: Recruiter could be used for recruiters, and Job Admin: Hiring Manager for hiring managers.
