Most Customer API endpoints require prior authorization by your app’s user. To get that authorization, your application will first need to make a call to the SmartRecruiters dedicated endpoint (see OAuth 2.0 page for details), passing along a list of the scopes for which access permission is sought.
Scopes let you specify exactly what types of data your app wants to access, and the set of scopes you pass in your call determines what access permissions the user is asked to grant.
Note: If the list of scopes is missed in the authorization call, the default scopes will be used. They are defined during your App registration process.
You should only request the scope you need at the time of authorization. If in the future you require an additional scope, you may forward the user to the authorization URL with that additional scope to be granted. If you attempt to perform a request with an access token that is not authorized for that scope, you will receive an OAuthPermissionsException error return.
To request multiple scopes at once, simply separate the scopes by a space. In the URL, this equates to an escaped space (
%20). So if you are requesting candidate read and write permission, the parameter will look like this:
Note that an empty scope parameter (
scope=) is invalid; you must either omit the scope or specify a non-empty scope list.
Take a look at our Demo app to find out how to use the scopes and how to implement the OAuth 2.0 flow.
On execution of the authorization request call, the user is redirected to a page explaining what information has been requested by the application:
