Today, Monday, March 22, 2021, Matador Jobs 3.7.3 released. It contains updates to handle changes to the Bullhorn API and a few bug fixes.

3.7.3 Changes

  • One of our users reported a failure of Matador Jobs after it encountered an HTTP 429 Too Many Requests response from the Bullhorn API. We had never seen this occur before, and we suspect Bullhorn may be making changes to their API to protect its health and uptime. The downside of this was Matador failed spectacularly when encountering this; we hadn’t taught it how to handle a 429 error! In 3.7.3, Matador will end its sync safely when Bullhorn’s API says “too busy, not right now.”
  • Our user Rich W found an issue with the “Redirect Application to Page” feature that could result in the application form missing the Bullhorn ID and therefore not properly being added as a submission to a job. We fixed this in 3.7.3.
  • Our 3.7.2 update, which “fixed” an issue around emails not sending when certain settings combinations were in use. In making the fix, we added some extra protections which, ironically, resulted in some emails being sent twice! We removed those extra protections… they were ultimately not needed and absolutely causing issues!
  • So Matador allows you to choose whether to use “Resume”, “Curriculum Vitae,” or “CV” to describe the qualifications summary document of an applicant. But what if you want to add the accent to the e’s, as in résumé? Now developers can use the developer filter resume_or_cv to modify the output of this value.
