How to view Bullhorn CRM data in RAD Studio Data Explorer using the CData FireDAC Components for Bullhorn CRM.

Embarcadero RAD Studio provides a development environment for Delphi and C++Builder applications. With the CData FireDAC Components for Bullhorn CRM, you gain access to live Bullhorn CRM data within RAD Studio, abstracting the data into tables, views, and stored procedures that can be used to both retrieve and update Bullhorn CRM data. This article will walk through connecting to Bullhorn CRM using the Data Explorer.

Connecting to Bullhorn CRM Data Using Data Explorer

You can create a simple application for displaying Bullhorn CRM data by utilizing the CData FireDAC Components for Bullhorn CRM and a new VCL Forms Application:

  1. Open the Data Explorer in RAD Studio and expand FireDAC.
  2. Right-click on CData Bullhorn CRM Data Source and click Add New Connection.

  3. Name the connection.
  4. Fill in the necessary connection parameters and click OK.

    Begin by providing your Bullhorn CRM account credentials in the following:

    If you are uncertain about your data center code, codes like CLS2, CLS21, etc. are cluster IDs that are contained in a user's browser URL (address bar) once they are logged in.

    Example: https://cls21.bullhornstaffing.com/BullhornSTAFFING/MainFrame.jsp?#no-ba... indicates that the logged in user is on CLS21.

    Authenticating with OAuth

    Bullhorn CRM uses the OAuth 2.0 authentication standard. To authenticate using OAuth, create and configure a custom OAuth app. See the Help documentation for more information.

  5. Back in the Data Explorer, expand the tables for the connection.
  6. Create a new VCL Forms application and drag a table (for example: Candidate) onto the form.

  7. Select the CandidateTable object on the form and set the Active property to true.
  8. Right-click on the object, bind visually, and link everything (*) to a new control (TStringGrid).

  9. Arrange the TStringGrid on the form and run the application to see the Candidate data.
