Upsert Entity ACLs

Use the following endpoint to create and update ACLs for entities:

PUT https://api.linkedin.com/v2/atsEntityAcls?ids[0].atsEntityAclId={id1}&ids[0].dataProvider=ATS&ids[0].integrationContext={organization URN}&ids[0].atsEntityId={entity id}&ids[0].atsEntityType={entity type}

Note

  • Please submit batch calls grouped with no more than 100 records in sequential order.
  • Do not assign more than 10 ACLs per user.
  • Update ACLs when users or jobs are added or updated to prevent visibility issues.

For each id specified in the request:

  • Use your security group or role id as the value of ids[i].atsEntityAclId .
  • Use the customer's organization id as the value of ids[i].integrationContext . The format should be "urn:li:organization:{id}".
  • Use "ATS" as the value of ids[i].dataProvider .
  • Use your entity identifier for the value of ids[i].atsEntityId .
  • Use one of the Securable Entity Type enums for the value of ids[i].atsEntityType .

Sample Request

Headers:

Authorization: Bearer {token}
x-restli-method: batch_update

  "entities": {
    "dataProvider=ATS&integrationContext=urn:li:organization:1000&atsEntityType=JOB_POSTING&atsEntityId=JOBP123&atsEntityAclId=eng_managers": {}
  }
}

If you would like to set a particular securable entity or a set of entities to be visible to all users (regardless of their ACL assignment) you can assign them to a special atsEntityAcl where the ids[i].atsEntityAclId parameter is set to ALL_PRODUCT_USERS . All securable entities assigned to this special ACL will be visible to all users.
