“Printing” the job database to PDF

Request with tokens

Transforming the data into a PDF can be delegated to the API by sending a POST-request with the endpoint /jobs/printPdf:

with TOKEN being either a client access token or a user access token.

The {postBody} in -d parameter represents a JSON Object as Follows:

“jobs” must contain the data that is to be transformed. Split jobs (=rows) using the string ‘::__::‘, the job’s data fields (=columns) with ‘::‘. “params” should contain the search parameters one used to obtain this job data. Split parameters with the string ‘::__::‘. And “headline” defines the resulting table’s headline text. Use ‘::‘ to split the different column names. The desired language that results should have in the final representation is extracted from the header. You then get something like this:
