The publication channel serves to share advertisements across systems, or to create a place for cooperation with agency portals. Here we will show how the XML principle works when setting up the publication channel for the JenPráce.cz portal. It is similar for other portals operating on the principle of XML data.
💡 Here is a link to an article with an overview of portals and integration methods.
The first step is to create a new publication channel. In the "Settings" menu, select "Publishing channels" (link)
Follow these steps to create a channel:
After creation, we can immediately click through to the newly created channel, where at the moment there are no positions and therefore, the displayed error is a desirable state.
To activate on the portal side, you need to send JenPráce.cz a link to the publication channel where the positions for them will be displayed. JenPráce.cz will download them and create advertisements from them.
By clicking on the line "xml: click to copy", we will copy the link and send it to whoever will deal with the integration on the JenPráce.cz side. Typically an account manager for your company.
After the portal, in this case JenPráce.cz, activates the publication channel on its side, you can start publishing positions. You ensure publication by selecting the publication channel "JenPráce.cz" for a specific position. The method is different for a newly created position and for an existing position.
In the last step when creating a position, we turn on the "JenPráce.cz" channel in the "Publish own publication channels" section. We can also set a desired expiration date for a given channel.
In the menu with actions for the given position, click on the icon called "+ Set publication channels".
Here we turn on the publication channel in the "Add advertisement to these XML outputs" section, set the expiration date and save with the "Save changes" button.
💡 If you want to check that the publication went well. you can view the contents of the XML channel in the browser by clicking the icon to open in a new window in the list of publication channels (link). On the displayed page, the list of active positions should also include yours just added:
