From Job Board Software Support

Jump to: navigation, search


JobMount posting interface should be used for automatic jobs publishing by 3rd party applications (i.e. Broadbean, Idibu, JobG8).

What it can do?

  • accept jobs in XML format from external sources using post or remove commands described below
  • XML should be pre-formatted based on site specs

What it can't do?

  • can not get jobs from external sources like HTTP link or FTP file
  • can not transform information received in XML

Alternatively there are functions like job aggregator or job wrapping to actively get jobs from external sources.


Jobs can be posted either as:

  • Single XML file containing both commands and all jobs content.
  • Multiple XMLs files (one for each job).

XML file is posted via HTTP to job board interface / URL.

Interface URL and full set of instructions compiled can be accessed via Admin section of job board software:

Content Tree: Home: Dynamic Content: Main: Posting Interface Info

JobMount job board application automatically compiles XML instructions.
