Integrations Administration

Administrators can set up integrations between Sourcing and other applicant tracking systems (ATS), and human resources information systems (HRIS). Some of the integrations can be complex and require implementation by Oracle.

Configuration

Sourcing integrations fall into the following categories:
  • Oracle Taleo integrations

  • Job Feed integrations

  • Employee Data integrations

  • Applicant Tracking System (ATS) integrations

  • Additional Sourcing/TE integration settings

Oracle Taleo Integrations

This implementation task is to verify the basic configuration settings required if your implementation includes integration with either Oracle Taleo Business Edition (TBE) or Oracle Taleo Enterprise (TE). These settings are configured by Oracle at the beginning of an implementation.

Basic enabling configuration settings for Oracle Taleo integrations are listed in the following tables.

Job Feed Integrations

This implementation task is to integrate your organization’s open job requisitions to Sourcing, whether from your career site, an Oracle Taleo application or another non-Taleo ATS. Prior to Sourcing 15A, customers needed to choose either the Job Feed API Integration introduced in 14B or the standard third-party job scrape to transfer job information. Now, they can use both. Customers can choose to use both the Job Feed API and the standard job scrape instead of selecting one method over the other to better meet their needs. This allows customers to either grab jobs from different ATS's or include additional data from the job feed.

  • In the case where the Job Feed API is used to populate jobs, jobs can also be populated by the standard job feed without causing issue to the Location table.

  • Once the Job Feed API is running, the user can add new jobs through the third-party scrape.

  • The third-party locations are matched to TE locations.

    Note: If a client is using a third-party job scrape, they must first migrate to using the TE API Job Feed, and then re-establish the feed from the job scrape to use both methods. The steps to set up the API Job Feed can be found in the documentation for Release 14B.

Job Requisition Integration via Job Scrape

One way this integration can be accomplished is for Oracle to initiate a job scraping process through a third party vendor. This is the traditional method used prior to release 14B, and requires Oracle implementation. Job scrape is required for customers with non-Taleo ATSs.

TBE Job Integration

For TBE customers, the job scrape can be replaced by setting up an API feed from the TBE zone.

Configuration

Configuration settings for the TBE job integration are listed in the following table.

TE Job Feed Integrations

Beginning with Sourcing version 14B, customers can synchronize open requisitions from Oracle Taleo Enterprise's career sections to Sourcing by leveraging the TE Job Feed API, which integrates jobs at regular intervals or on demand. The API sends Sourcing:
  • TE organization, location and job field (OLF) information.

  • TE job requisition information, including the association for which CS a job is posted at.

This feature requires both TE and Sourcing version 14B or later. The Job Feed benefits customers who use both CS and Sourcing, as well as those who use Sourcing as a front-end to CS. It provides the ability to self-manage the transfer of OLF data from TE to Sourcing, replacing the need to engage third party services to perform job scrapes. Once the Job Feed is configured, Sourcing requests OLF and jobs information from TE at regular intervals or on demand, and the API sends the information to the Sourcing database.

To set up the job feed integration the administrator performs the following high-level steps:
  1. Review the details of the TE OLF structure in the TE Configuration module's SmartOrg Administration section.

  2. Configure the OLF structure, Career Section synchronization, and Job Feed settings in the Sourcing Configuration area's Taleo section.

  3. Run the initial job feed load.

  4. Review the results of the job feed in the Sourcing application to verify intended results.

Job Requisition in Multiple Languages

When an administrator sets up a Job Feed integration between TE and Sourcing, TE sends job fields that are translated or relate to the job requisition language (e.g. title, title (by manager), description internal, description external, qualifications internal, qualifications external, base language). Translated information from TE is mapped to the locales/languages in Sourcing.

Job Category

When an administrator sets up a Job Feed integration between TE and Sourcing, they can map which fields in the TE Job Field correspond to the Sourcing Job Category. This provides Sourcing a synchronized view of that component of the TE Organization, Location, and Job Field (OLF) structure. In the Sourcing Configuration area a read-only browser is populated for viewing the job field (job category level) tree information. If the API feed is run on regular intervals the Sourcing tree is updated when job fields are changed in TE. The data feed from TE also populates the corresponding job category facet in Sourcing, which is used throughout Sourcing (e.g. for category landing pages and job searches).

Job Location

When an administrator sets up a Job Feed integration between TE and Sourcing, they can map which fields in the TE Location correspond to the Sourcing city, state/province and country. This provides Sourcing a synchronized view of that component of the TE Organization, Location, and Job Field (OLF) structure. In the Sourcing Configuration area a read-only browser is populated for viewing the location tree information. If the API feed is set to run on regular intervals the Sourcing tree is updated when location fields are changed in TE. The data feed provides Sourcing all the different TE job locations, including secondary locations for a job, so that Sourcing can use them in job searches.

Job Organization

Customers that have different companies in TE and who want to be able to use them as facets in Sourcing (while running the Job Feed API), now have a tool to map the Organization in the OLF to a Company facet.

  • When used, the mapping function maps Organization to a company or brand.

  • When activated, this creates a facet in the Job Results page from which users can filter jobs.

  • When activated, this allows the Administrator to filter sites based on company (organization).

    Note: 

    For a job to show up on the Job Details page, the Company filter must be enabled in the Site Builder.

To use this feature, users must go into the configuration and set the Organization level. It is recommended that customers minimize the number of times that the Organization mapping is changed; this should only happen during setup or while changing the organization in SmartOrg.

Career Sections

When an administrator runs the Career Section synchronization between TE and Sourcing, and subsequently a candidate applies to a job, Sourcing can route the candidate to the most appropriate CS application flow.

Currency Fields

Currency is part of the job feed, and represented as a text value (e.g. USD for United States Dollars). The currency displayed to a candidate is that for their selected language locale.

ourcing

Date Override on Manual Job Synchronization

If it is discovered that a job that resides in Recruiting did not come over into Sourcing through the scheduled Job Synchronization, a new Manual Job Synchronization feature enables the Administrator to correct this error. The scheduled Job Connector requests requisitions with a last modification time and date since the last time it ran. If there are jobs, which for some anomaly did not synchronize into Sourcing, the Manual Job Synchronization can be invoked to retrieve the missing jobs. Administrators enter a date into the Manual Job Synchronization and the synchronizer will request all jobs that are currently posted on the tethered career sections with a last modification date on or after the date selected.

When no date is selected, clicking the Synchronize Now button will request jobs from Recruiting that were modified or posted after the last time the Job Connector ran. Selecting a specific date will request jobs from Recruiting which were modified or posted after the date entered.

Employee Data Integrations

This implementation task is to integrate your organization’s employee data to Sourcing, whether from an Oracle Taleo application or another Human Resources Information System (HRIS).

The HRIS integration for most Sourcing customers consists of a flat file delivery to an Oracle hosted sFTP server. The upload file must be in CSV format, and in accordance with Oracle specifications. Customers go over file specifications, data fields and delivery processes with Oracle during implementation. Existing Oracle Taleo customers who use Oracle Taleo Performance Management (PM) can also leverage a PM extract in lieu of an additional inbound integration that they would need to develop to send the employee data into Sourcing. Oracle implementation is required. For customers wanting to establish a direct feed from their HRIS to Sourcing, an Employee Feed API integration is offered.

It is recommended customers do a full re-synchronization of all employees with the Synch ALL Now button which invokes a manual resynchronization. This is so that the additional datafields which are added to the Employee Sync are brought over into Sourcing.

Employee Feed API Integration

The Employee Feed is an Oracle Taleo Enterprise (TE) integration based on an API. The Employee Feed provides employee information for Oracle Taleo Sourcing (Sourcing) customers that have an HRIS feed into TE without having to set up a separate user feed from HRIS to Sourcing. This integration provides the data in a familiar API with relevant fields so that it can be consumed by Sourcing.
When the Employee Feed runs, Sourcing populates new employees and deactivates terminated employees. The fields that are synchronized are:
  • First Name

  • Last Name

  • Email

  • Employee ID

  • Office Location

  • Department/Category

The Employee Feed calls synchronization to the OLF repository before it loads to make sure all of the available picklist values are in the database. Settings within Sourcing Configuration allow the feed to be manual or set up as a recurring feed at designated intervals. There is a trigger for a full load, and if scheduled, it can pull the delta. These configuration settings are found in Configuration > Taleo > Synchronize Employees with TEE.

Applicant Tracking System (ATS) Integrations

This integration sets up the handoff of candidates to the customer's ATS, such as Oracle Taleo Career Section.

Apply Flow Integration

Apply Flow Integration allows you to configure and direct the routing of applicants between Oracle Taleo Enterprise (TE) and Oracle Taleo Sourcing (Sourcing).

This ensures candidates are directed to the most appropriate application process when applying for a job, and have an application experience that is designed for their role (i.e. whether they are an internal, external or mobile user).

Administrator users synchronize the TE Career Sections (CS) integration by running a process from the TSS Configuration area. Once they have the synchronized career sections, they use that as the basis for where to direct users to. If this is configured, when an applicant clicks an Apply button in TSS, they get directed to an application flow in CS that:
  • Exists as one of the priority CS application flows specified in the TE configuration module.

  • Includes the job the candidate is applying for.

  • Respects whether the applicant is internal (employee), external or a mobile user.

  • Is in the same language the applicant was viewing the job from.

If the applicant is on a mobile device, and the preferred application flow does not have a mobile pairing, they are sent to a site with the job that has a mobile pairing.

OLF Integration in Sourcing

Administrators use Sourcing's configuration area to synchronize Oracle Taleo Enterprise (TE) organization, location and job field (OLF) information to Sourcing's business, country/state/province, and job categories.

The TE Job Feed sends Sourcing the OLF information relevant to TE job requisitions, when requested by Sourcing at intervals set in the Sourcing configuration. Jobs data and OLF structure are fetched at the same time, and the two systems are synchronized.

Sourcing administrators use settings within the Taleo Enterprise Edition and Taleo OLF Structure configuration sections to:
  • Synchronize the job feed (right now or at defined intervals).

  • Synchronize the employee feed (right now or at defined intervals).

  • View the imported TE OLF information in a set of read-only tree structures.

  • Map the TE location information to Sourcing address, city, state or province, and country.

  • Map the TE job field information to Sourcing job category.

  • Map the TE company information to Sourcing organization.

Note: When TE Career Section is in Maintenance Mode, the job feed synchronization is disabled. When CS is back in production mode, changes made during maintenance are fetched during the next job feed load.

Mapping TE Locations to Sourcing

You must have administrator access to Sourcing.

Review the TE OLF Structure in the TE SmartOrg Administration configuration section before initial setup or making any changes.

If this is for an initial load there is no information in the Location tree structure. Set the location levels prior to the initial load.

If the Job Feed has been loaded previously, location levels have been set before and are visible in the configuration, and the Location tree in the Taleo OLF Structure subsection is populated with data from TE.

[Sourcing] Administrator login > [Home page] User Settings (Name) > Configuration > Taleo > Taleo Enterprise Edition
Procedure
  1. Select the OLF Location Levels for the location data from the job feed to populate the location facet in Sourcing, corresponding to the Sourcing address, city, state/province and country. Locations are used in areas of the application such as:

    • Jobs short description in Search results and email campaigns.

    • Job Details page.

    • Job search and campaigns facets.

    • Job alerts (Interests).

    • Manage Location Landing pages.

  2. When you change a location level, make sure TE is enabled, and then click the Refresh button (required). This is necessary to refresh the job location and translations data.

When the levels are set and the data refreshed, Location data is re-populated in relevant tables.

TE jobs populate in Sourcing with the location information at the configured levels.

The location data also populates the Location tree structure.

Mapping TE Job Fields to Sourcing Job Category

You must have administrator access to Sourcing.

Review the TE OLF Structure in the TE SmartOrg Administration configuration section before initial setup or making any changes.

If this is for an initial load there is no information in the Job Category tree structure. Set the job category levels prior to the initial load.

If the Job Feed has been loaded previously, job category levels have been set before and are visible in the configuration, and the Job Category tree in the Taleo OLF Structure subsection is populated with data from TE.

[Sourcing] Administrator login > [Home page] User Settings (Name) > Configuration > Taleo > Taleo Enterprise Edition
Procedure
  1. Select the OLF Category Level, for the job field data from the job feed to populate the category facet in Sourcing. Categories are used in areas of the application such as:

    • Portal tiles.

    • Landing pages.

    • Job Search facets.

    • Job Search results list.

    • Job Details page.

    • Job Alerts (Interests).

    • Auto-suggest in Search.

  2. When you change the Category Level, and don't want to wait for the next run of the job feed, click the Synchronize Now button. The button is located in the Taleo Enterprise Edition Job Connector subsection.

When the level is set and the job feed run again, this will cause the TE jobs to populate in Sourcing with the category information from that level.

The job categories and job titles also populate the Job Fields tree structure.
