Pulling Custom Tables

There are two main steps to pulling BambooHR custom tables into OrgChart:

  1. Configure the custom table in BambooHR. Reference the Configuring Custom Tables section for details on how to configure a custom table in BambooHR in order to pull open requisitions.

  2. Select the custom table you would like to pull in OrgChart Now. Reference the Selecting a Custom Table section for details on how to select the custom table you would like to pull using the OrgChart interface.

Configuring Custom Tables

In order to pull open requisitions into OrgChart, Administrators must first do the following:

  • Submit a request to your BambooHR System Admin to create a custom table.

    Important

    The table ALIAS is the name of the table in the code, and must be exactly as written above. A table label is the name of the table in your BambooHR interface. The label of the table does not affect OrgChart's ability to pull your data.

  • Have BambooHR provide the custom table ALIAS to you.

  • Request the custom table includes (at least) the following Field Names: "Job ID", "Job Title", "Department"

  • Request the custom table's Field Names have the correct Field Formats: Number (Job ID), List (Job Title), List (Department)

  • Populate the custom table for the employee record to whom the vacancy will report.

  • Confirm the API Service User has access to view the custom field. Reference the BambooHR Permissions article for more information.
