๐ŸŽ† There you have it! You are now fully integrated with SuccessFactors! Now you are all set, and you can start linking Bryq assessments to your SuccessFactors Job Requisitions.

๐Ÿ“Œ You now have two options available:

Option A. Bryq automatically creates the Assessment with the default settings once a requisition linked to Bryq is approved.

Option B. Manually create & Link a Bryq assessment to a SuccessFactors Job Requisition.

Option A: Automated creation of the Assessment in Bryq

Recognizing the value of your time and the significance of a seamless user experience in your daily tasks, we have further refined the SAP SF integration. Now, assessments can be automatically created without the need for users to log in to Bryq and perform additional steps.

Your preference for this streamlined option is important to us, and we want to emphasize that proper setup in Tool is crucial for maximizing the benefits of this process.

After establishing the integration between SAP SF & Tool, take a moment to ensure the correct configuration of assessment default settings.

Navigate to Profile > Assessment Settings and, under Assessment Defaults, set the standard values for assessments.

The default values will be the ones used when an assessment is automatically created. Namely:

  1. The assessment kind (Express for Frontline and Hourly Workers, Standards for Office Positions or Personality Only).

  2. The assessment language - typically refers to the business language used.

  3. Assessment validity days - indicates when the assessment invitation is considered expired.

  4. Monitor assessment - proctoring.

  5. Indicators - which competencies are important for you to review.

Once you make sure that the Assessment Defaults are the correct ones then go back to SuccessFactors and enable the event notification for this event. First search for Event Subscription Management and then select the event Update of Job Requisition.

Click Add and in the form add the following details:


  1. Name: RequisitionUpdateSubscription

  2. Authentication Type: Basic

  3. Username: The generated User from Bryq (Under Integrations > SAP SF > Expand to view details)

  4. Password: The generated Password from Bryq (Under Integrations > SAP SF > Expand to view details)

  5. Event type is populated by SAP SF.

Click Save. A notification pops up explaining that the Subscription event has been saved.

๐Ÿ’ก Under the Execution Manager dashboard > Pre-delivered Integrations there is a monitor log of each time SAP SF tries to ping Bryq for the related event subcription notification.

And you are all set. Next time you approve a Job Requisition in SuccessFactors that has linked Bryq as an assessment vendor, our system automatically creates the assessment in Bryq with the following name convention: Job ID - External Job Title - Location. The Department is shown in the Department column.

The profile is generated based on the Job Description parsed by SAP SF. In case no description available the role profile will allocate the weights equally for Cognitive but for Personality no trait will be selected.

Finally, the default Assessment Settings (kind, language, validity, indicators) will apply for the automatic creation of the assessment in Bryq.

๐Ÿ“ŒPlease note that a job in Bryq is automatically created only when you create and approve a Requisition in SuccessFactors, not when you update an existing one.

9. Once all fields are completed click on Submit Approval and the Job is now open.

Option B: Manually create & link a Bryq assessment to a SuccessFactors Job Requisition

  1. Click on New Job; click the button Connect with SuccessFactors.

2. A pop-up with the available Requisitions in SAP Success Factors appears.

๐Ÿ“Œ Bryq also sends the candidate results as a PDF attachment. By default, Bryq is sending the attachment to the field `attachment1` which is usually called "Additional Documents" in the default SF templates:

* NXGEN Candidate Detail Info Template

* NXGEN Candidate Detail Info Template NEW

* NXGEN Candidate Detail Info Template - Quick Apply

If you want to customize where the PDF report is sent, you should give us the name of an Attachment field on JobApplication, for example, `attachment1` which is our default.
