Note: The field names should be provided as specified in the Zoho Recruit API document.

<connection>

TEXT

The link name of the Zoho Recruit connection.

Note:

  • In view of stopping new authtoken generation, a Zoho OAuth connection with appropriate scopes is mandatory in order for new integration tasks (created after the deadline specified in the post) to work as expected. Existing integration tasks will continue to work with or without the connections parameter until you manually delete the authtoken from accounts.
  • Add relevant scopes mentioned in Zoho Recruit API while creating the connection.
  • Refer to this post for the list of Zoho services that support the connections page.
