3rd party API and collections

Hi all,

I am looking for a solution for a recruitment site I am working on. The client uses a 3rd party service to post their jobs to various job boards. This service provides an API with which they can POST an XML feed to a URL.

I am looking for some advice on the possibility of inserting / deleting collection items based on this XML feed via the Runway API, and also if there are any developers interested in quoting for this work. I can provide more specific requirements but essentially the process is as follows:

  • Client posts / updates / deletes a job in 3rd party jobs site
  • 3rd party API POSTS XML to a URL on Perch site
  • Perch API processes XML and changes are reflected in collection items.

Many thanks

It's certainly possible if you find the right person.

Great thanks Drew :-)

I'm going to bump this - anyone out there?

Have you tried the registered developers?

Thanks Drew, might be the way to go.
