The Jobs APIs are a set of tools that allow companies to integrate their job posting systems with Catho, without the need of posting jobs on the site manually. 

APIs Modeling

All services provided through the API using the REST technology (Representational State Transfer), an architecture for the provision of resources through distributed systems, commonly used over HTTP. Below we can see examples of how services are formed:



Ilustração modelagem das APIs


  • • Hostname: Main Address Services.
  • • API Version: version of the service that is being consumed.
  • • Resource Root: service name.

From the Resource Root, we can access the main operations of the service (CRUD), the standard HTTP methods, as follows:

Create POST
Read GET
Update PUT
/vagas Jobs list Create new Job * *
/vagas/123 Retrieve the job 123 *** ** * *
/vagas/123/reativada * * Reactivate job 123 *
/vagas/123/renovada * * Renew job 123 *
/vagas/123/desativada * * Disable job 123 *
* The method should not be implemented in collections, then expected to return with ERROR 405 - method not allowed
** The method should not be implemented on items then expected to return with ERROR 405 - method not allowed. However, it is used in the case of an asynchronous call.
*** As the application is an aggregator feature, should return by default all items associated

That is, the service /vagas in the above example, if we make a GET operation, we get an answer a list of jobs and, if we make a POST, we will save a new wave (available only in Sandbox environment).

HTTP 1.1

The standard protocol for communication with the APIs is the HTTP version 1.1. For more information about this protocol, see:



The charset standard for calls to APIs is UTF-8.

For more information about this encoding, see:



JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a standard open format that uses text to transmit data between a server and web application as an alternative to XML.

By default all API JSON travels, both to receive information (POST and PUT methods) and in return (GET method).

Because of this standardization, for POST and PUT calls, you must inform two parameters in the Header:

• Accept: application / json
• Content-Type: application / json

Otherwise, you receive an HTTP Error 415: Unsupported Media Type.


There are two endpoints to access the API services: use the Production endpoint only when your application is published, and while their application is developed, use the endpoint Sandbox.

To access Production, use the URL below:


To test the Sandbox services, use the URL below:



HTTP Status

The HTTP codes below indicate successfully returns:

• HTTP 200: Indicates that processing was performed correctly and the return will be as expected.
• HTTP 201: Indicates that the object sent in the request body was included.

The HTTP codes below indicate returns with error:

• HTTP 400: Invalid Request.
• HTTP 401: Invalid Authentication.
• HTTP 403: Authentication denied.
• HTTP 404: Not Found.
• HTTP 405: Method Not Allowed.
• HTTP 408: Timeout.
• HTTP 409: Conflict.
• HTTP 413: Request Exceeds Maximum Filesize.
• HTTP 415: Media Type Invalid.
• HTTP 422: Business Exceptions.
• HTTP 500: Internal Server Error.

Erros de validação

These errors prevent the realization of the submitted action, to forward the request is necessary to change the body data, header or URL parameters, as instructed by giving an error.

See an example in the field "title" was not informed in the POST body:


        E010201: "Invalid Title."

When viewing the results of some API methods you can choose to use paging parameters. To page results you can choose to use two parameters in the query string itself, "page" and "pageSize" as shown below:


Thus, as a result, we have a list of 10 objects from the list first. If you do not use the paging parameters, by default, the return is always with 10 items per page.

Below are all parameters that can be passed via the URL:

dataCadastro: Period of vacancies (only in GET):


page: Indicates the current page of the consultation;

pageSize: Indicates the number of records per page;

Below are some of the main properties of the result:

page_count: page count in the query result;

page_size: Maximum number of items per page;

total_items: Number of items from the query result;

_links: Are the navigation references to the pages:

  • self: current page
  • first: first page
  • last: last page
  • next: next page
  • prev: previous page
