Reporting API

The Reporting API allows companies to retrieve reports metadata, as well as the report data contained within custom reports built in Report Builder. Customers can programmatically download data extracts or build BI (Business Intelligence) integrations for reporting and analysis.

This API replaces the existing Analytics API and data services.

The Analytics API endpoints will be deprecated on Feb 28th, 2019.

Can I get data from the Reporting API directly to a data visualization software?

Yes, you can! Currently we support direct integration with Tableau via the Web Data Connector. Here is a handy guide on how to set it up. You can also manually import reports built with our internal Report Builder with this integration.

I seem to be having trouble with the Tableau Web Data Connector (WDC). What can I do?

If you are experiencing errors when using Tableau's WDC to feed data from our Reporting API to your Tableau analytics suite, such as whitelisting or data sync problems, please ensure you have followed Tableau's set up documentation accordingly, and get in touch first with Tableau support, as this feature is not owned or maintained by SmartRecruiters. If problems persist and found not to be caused by a misconfiguration of the WDC, please get in touch with our technical support for further assistance.
