Upload Files to Zoho Recruit


The zoho.recruit.uploadFile() task can be executed to upload file attachments, for example - an image, to any of the supported modules of Zoho Recruit. By placing it in the required form actions block of Zoho Creator, the process of uploading files to Zoho Recruit can easily be automated as per requirement. Lets say you have a Zoho Creator form which holds details related to a candidate including file upload field types for uploading images. To upload these file attachments simultaneously to our Zoho Recruit, you can execute zoho.recruit.uploadFile() task in the “On Success” form actions block. This will upload specified file attachments to Zoho Recruit whenever the Zoho Creator form is submitted with candidate’s documents. Further details on how to execute this task are explained below.

 Supported Modules

  • Candidates
  • Job Openings
  • Clients
  • Client Contacts


response = zoho.recruit.uploadFile(id, fileName, type);

<response> - is the map variable returned by Zoho Recruit as response. 
<id> -  ID of the record in Zoho Recruit where the file attachment will be uploaded. (mandatory)
<fileName> - name of the file attachment. (mandatory)
<type> - attachment type just for reference purpose. Example - resume/image/document etc. (mandatory)


Following is a sample script that can be added in a Zoho Creator form to upload files to Zoho Recruit. Let's say we have a Creator form to upload a candidate's photo. You can add the following script to On Add -> On Success block of the Creator Form so that whenever this form is submitted, images are simutaneously uploaded to Zoho Recruit.

response = zoho.recruit.uploadFile("1687000000116035", "john.png", "image");

response - is the map variable returned by Zoho Recruit as response. 
1687000000116035 - ID of record in Zoho Recruit where the image will be uploaded.
john.png - refers to the file name.
image - refers to the file type.


Response returned by Zoho Recruit as map:

{"message":"File has been attached successfully","Created Time" : "2015-11-19 18:18:25", "Modified By":"deepika.p","Id" :"1687000000116035", "Modified Time":"2015-11-19 18:18:25", "Created By" : "deepika.p" }
