Announcement

 

This is a formal feature decommissioning alert for certain LinkedIn integrations within Oracle Taleo Social Sourcing due to LinkedIn’s recently announced changes to their developer programs and access to LinkedIn APIs. For reference find the LinkedIn announcement here: https://developer.linkedin.com/blog/posts/2015/developer-program-changes.

 

Customer Impact

 

Changes that impact Oracle Taleo Social Sourcing are limited to two features, which will be removed from the product:

1) The ability to search for matching connections based on job titles and to send a personal message via LinkedIn

2) Recommended connections in the promo banner for a logged in employee

For now, the following LinkedIn features will stay.

1)  Employees can sign In with LinkedIn

 

2) Referrers can post a job as a status update to LinkedIn (along with Facebook and Twitter)

 

There is NO IMPACT to the LinkedIn features in Taleo Recruiting – candidates can still upload their profile when applying and those with LinkedIn Recruiter licenses can still view profiles in LinkedIn directly from Recruiting Center. Oracle continues to be a LinkedIn partner in its Talent Solutions Partner Program:  https://business.linkedin.com/talent-solutions/partners


Timeline

 

Changes to the LinkedIn APIs will go into effect May 12, 2015. Oracle will be removing the features from Social Sourcing via the following maintenance packs:


1) 14A.10 – This will be available:  April 15th, 2015


2) 14B.5.1 – This will be available: April 20th, 2015

 

Users on earlier versions of Social Sourcing will likely notice unpredictable or erratic behavior if they try to use the two decommissioned features post May 12,2015.

 

Next Steps


  • Announce upcoming changes to your organization and cease using capabilities targeted for removal
  • Plan for an MP upgrade on Social Sourcing before LinkedIn makes their API changes public on May 12, 2015.

MyOracleSupport_Welcome_NoVideo.jpgWhile Taleo Enterprise Edition (TEE) has been utilizing Guided Resolution flows since late last year, we implemented these flows for Taleo Business Edition (TBE) and Taleo Learn in February. The flows are designed to guide customers to a technical resolution for known issues by using fact-driven logic based on your specific situation and/or configurations.


Taleo Learn - 13 flows that cover LC Course, LC User, LC Appearance, Vanity URL and My Team DO.


TBE - 14 flows that cover Candidate, Recruit Customize, Performance Issue, Backup, Outlook Plug-in, Requisition and Reporting.


TEE - 68 flows that cover Career Section, Recruiting, Onboarding, Reporting Business Objects and Taleo Connect Client.


At this time this functionality is only available through the MOS Portal, it will be added to the Cloud Support Portal at a later date.


The flows are triggered by selecting a specific problem type. Below is an example of what appears to you our customers when you create an SR and select one of the corresponding issues.


SR Issue Type.png

ic-Google+-red.gif


Background

Google is replacing their existing “Sign in with Google” capability with “Sign in with Google+”. Google requires vendors, such as Oracle, to replace the existing “Sign in with Google” authentication method with the newer “Sign in with Google+” authentication method to avoid user disruption.

 

As of April 20, 2015, Google will no longer support its “Sign in with Google” authentication method.



Customer Impact

All customers that currently allow candidates to log into career sites using their Google credentials are impacted by Google’s deprecation of the “Sign in with Google” capability.

 

Customers currently allowing candidates to sign in using Google credentials

Candidates using their Google credentials to log into customer career sites will lose the ability to access their accounts unless customers that are currently leveraging the “Sign in with Google” capability, upgrade to Oracle Taleo Enterprise Edition (TEE) 14A Maintenance Pack (MP) 9 or TEE 14B (or higher) and undergo the appropriate steps to enable and configure “Sign in with Google+” prior to Google’s deprecation of the “Sign in with Google” feature on April 20th, 2015.

 

Customers wishing to allow candidates to sign in using Google credentials in the future

Customers that have never enabled candidates to sign in to career sites using their Google credentials, but would like to do so, must upgrade to TEE 14A MP9 or TEE 14B (or higher) and undergo the appropriate steps to enable and configure “Sign in with Google+”.

 

Action Required: It is highly recommended that customers that currently allow candidates to log into career sites using Google credentials upgrade to TEE 14A MP9 or TEE 14B (or higher) and enable the “Sign in with Google+” capability.

 


Critical Dates

14A Maintenance Pack 9 – Target General Availability: March 16th, 2015

14B Maintenance Pack 3 – Target General Availability: January 14th, 2015

Sign in with Google deprecation April 20th 2015

 


Note:
If you currently use the “Sign in with Google” capability and are unable to complete the upgrade to TEE 14A MP9 or TEE 14B (or higher) and enable the new “Sign in with Google+” capability by April 20th, 2015, it is advised that you provide a message on the Career Section Sign in section to instruct candidates to recover their password, using the “Forgot your password” function.  Candidates should be instructed to use their Google email as their Career Section user name and email address during password recovery process.

 

Additional instructions on configuring and enabling the new “Sign in with Google+” can be found at: http://appsconnect.custhelp.com/files/0c5668f223/c_google_14A9_14B3_14B4.pdf
