Candidate Gateway (e-recruitment)

Candidate Gateway which earlier was known as e-recruitment til HRMS 8.8, enables applicants to View information about current job openings in the organization. Applicants can search, save search criteria, save job openings. There are three main functionalities of CW.

Applicants can search for jobs, apply for jobs, and employees can refer applicants.

Applicants can upload their resumes (depends on setup), submit job applications and resumes for specific job openings. Applicants can maintain and update their personal profile information.
There are certain steps needs to be done to setup this module to be accessible for external world (outside your domain). Below are some steps in brief to accomplish the same task in application version HRMS 8.9.

Create a permission list A and include the menus given below in that:


In menu HRS_HRAM, make sure you have given the access of component HRS_CE only and under pages, for all pages:

In HRS_HRS menu, make sure you have given the access the components HRS_APP_SCHJOB and HRS_APP_SEARCHES only and with all the pages under that:

Make a new role B and add permission list A and HCCPRS1100 in that role.

Then create a new user say C, and assign role B to that user.

In ID info of this user, enter the following information:

Operator Alias value: PUBLIC

Now, make 2 app server domains and corresponding to each of them, create 2 web server domains choosing different web profiles (for examples if in one you have chosen DEV, in second, choose PROD).

In one domain, check the bypass signon checkbox in the PIA which you are configuring to setup for external candidate.

Here (arrow), enter the user ID which you have created and its password. After doing this, restart the app and web server domain in which you have done this proceeding with clearing the cache.

Now, in given below URL, enter your server and information which will redirect to Candidate Gateway page only and then test if it is working or not:
