With the October ’21 Release, the same transactions, fields, and validations that exist with the Edge Import Capabilities Library and User Profile loads are now available as an API endpoint for custom integrations. Customers can retrieve the schema with request fields directly from the API. Transactions can be saved as “jobs” and are viewable through Edge Import.
How Does this Enhancement Benefit My Organization?
For customers who want to build custom integrations, the new Capabilities Bulk API allows customers to load the same Capabilities Library and User Profile data as Edge Import using API calls instead of a CSV upload.
The Capabilities Bulk API is designed to update one or more records at a time. For customers who want to read data, the same fields are provided through the Data Exporter API.
The Capabilities Bulk API is intended to facilitate larger, periodic updates to skills data in Cornerstone, but not real-time transactions. Cornerstone is looking in to possibly support real-time 2-way transactions in the future with a different transactional API.
API Explorer Documentation
The Capabilities Bulk API is included with the Bulk API that is available in the Edge Marketplace. Additional documentation will be available in the API Explorer upon release of this new API. Edge Import must also be installed in a portal in order to use this API.
