Oracle iRecruitment - Version to 12.2 [Release 11.5.10 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
iRecruitment - Version:


You need to provide a direct link to an outside provider for all of your open vacancies that are posted on your iRecruitruitment site.  How do you format the URL so the user can be brought directly to the vacancy to apply for a job?  When a candidate submits a job referral, the following URL is in the Workflow email that is sent to the new candidate.  It appears that the p_svid field is the Vacancy number. But what is the p_spid field?

https://<external url>/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?OAFunc=IRC_VIS_VAC_DISPLAY&p_svid=<9999>&p_spid=<999999>

You are building an interface to job central and one of the required fields in the interface is a direct link (url) to the job posting in iRecruitment. You thought you could use the same link that is generated for a job posting from the Job Referral workflow, but you aren't sure what the p_spid field represents. A direct link to iRecruitment for a particular job posting could also be used on other vendor sites.
