Recommending a specific job to another person

Request with tokens

Sharing job postings among users is supported by the API. By using a POST with the /jobs/{jobDbId}/recommend endpoint, a job can be send to another person:

with TOKEN being either a client access token or a user access token and {jobDbId} corresponding to the job that is to be shared. {from} and {to} must be the email addresses of the sender and the recipient respectively, {message} is self-explanatory in this context. If the recommendation already exists, nothing is done.

Request with basic authorization

As an alternative, you can use here the basic authorization method. Just write

{clientId} is the ID for your application to develop given to you by softgarden. The colon seen in the example is obligatory.
