The Zoho Recruit API is available in all editions of Zoho Recruit. To use the API, you'll require the Zoho Recruit Authentication Token from your Recruit account. Please make sure that you have the permission to access the API service. If you do not have permission, please contact your Recruit administrator.

Important Notes

  • The PST Time zone will be considered.
  • To optimize your API usage, get maximum 200 records with each request and insert, update or delete maximum 100 records with each request.

    Example: If you have purchased 10 user licenses, you are allowed 2500 requests per day. Using each of those 2500 requests, you can update maximum 100 records. That would be 2500 x 100 i.e. 250,000 records can be updated/inserted/deleted per day.

  • In case, your application requires more than the upper limit, your additional API requests will not be processed. To avoid data transfer issues, please assess your API requirements well in advance. If you need any help, please contact our Support at support@zohorecruit.com
