Creating an app in Lever

Lever follows a process to provide its partners credentials through their Partnership Interest Form submission. A Lever sandbox is required to register for an OAuth app to get access to a Client Id & Client Secret. For more details on becoming a partner on Lever, follow this link.

Once you have access to a Lever Sandbox, register for an OAuth app to retrieve your credentials. To request any changes to the app (e.g. scopes, callbacks) you can contact Lever’s Partner Support team by opening a ticket.

To create a Lever sandbox account please provide the following details:

  1. Integration name - Name of your Company/Product
  2. Product description
  3. Callback URI -
  4. Logo - A square logo of your product or company
  5. Scopes - Lever recommends its users to review Lever’s use cases to understand what scopes to request for, prior to registering for a Sandbox App. It’s helpful to select a broad set of scopes for testing the integration as revisions to the scope configuration on Lever will require reaching out to Lever’s Partner Experience team by opening a ticket or emailing a member of their Partner Experience team.

Below are the list of scopes that you should request to be included.

offline_access, applications:read:admin, archive_reasons:read:admin, contact:write:admin, feedback:write:admin, files:write:admin, forms:write:admin, interviews:write:admin, notes:write:admin, offers:read:admin, opportunities:write:admin, panels:write:admin, postings:write:admin, referrals:read:admin, requisition_fields:write:admin, requisitions:write:admin, resumes:read:admin, sources:read:admin, stages:read:admin, tags:read:admin, uploads:write:admin, users:write:admin, webhooks:write:admin

Configuring Lever credentials in Cobalt

App settings page lets you configure the authentication settings for an OAuth 2.0 based application. For your customers to provide you authorization to access their data, they would first need to install your application. This page lets you set up your application credentials.

Setting up Lever application client credentials

Cobalt lets you use pre-configured applications to play around. You can do so by selecting Use our credentials. However, if you wish to use your own application, select Use your own credentials. Provide the aquired Client Id and Client secret and save it.

Requesting permissions from your customers

Cobalt lets you configure what permissions to ask from your users while they install your application. The scopes can be added or removed from the App settings page, under Permissions & Scopes section.

Make sure that you only select among the scopes that were earlier requested to be added to your sandbox account. Click on save changes after selecting the scopes.

That’s it, your users can now connect with your Lever applications through their auth flow setups. They would be requested permissions as per the scopes selected by you on the Cobalt app settings page.
