Bamboozled is a Ruby wrapper for the BambooHR API.
Bamboozled follows Semantic Versioning 2.0.0. Make sure to always bound the major version when installing if you want to avoid breaking changes.
This documentation tracks the latest changes in the
master branch of this
repo. Some of the features described might not be available in older versions of
the gem (including the current stable version). Please consult the relevant git
tag (e.g. v0.0.7) if you need documentation for a specific Bamboozled version.
Bamboozled's installation follows the standard gem installation process:
$ gem install bamboozled
If you prefer to install Bamboozled through
bundler then add it to your
client and provide it with your BambooHR subdomain and an API key:
# Create the client: client = Bamboozled.client(subdomain: "your_subdomain", api_key: "your_api_key")
TIP! Create an API key by logging into your BambooHR account, then click your image in the upper right corner and select "API Keys".
Employee related data:
You can pass an array of fields to
:all to get all fields your user
is allowed to access. Because BambooHR's API doesn't allow for specifying fields
/employees/directory API endpoint, passing a list of fields to retrieve
will be signifigantly slower than getting just the default fields since the gem
will get the directory of employees, then request the data for each individual
employee resulting in
employees.count + 1 API calls.
# Returns an array of all employees client.employee.all # Gets all employees with default fields client.employee.all(:all) # Gets all fields for all employees client.employee.all(["hireDate", "displayName"]) client.employee.all("hireDate,displayName") # Get the employee records which have changed since a given date client.employee.last_changed("2015-01-01T00:00:00-08:00", :updated) client.employee.last_changed("2015-01-01T00:00:00-08:00", :inserted) client.employee.last_changed("2015-01-01T00:00:00-08:00", :deleted) client.employee.last_changed("2015-01-01T00:00:00-08:00") # Return all changes # Returns a hash of a single employee client.employee.find(employee_id, fields = nil) # Adds an employee client.employee.add(employee_details_hash) # Tabular employee data client.employee.job_info(employee_id) client.employee.employment_status(employee_id) client.employee.compensation(employee_id) client.employee.dependents(employee_id) client.employee.contacts(employee_id) # Time off estimate for employee. Requires end date in Date or Time format or YY-MM-DD string. client.employee.time_off_estimate(employee_id, end_date) # Photos for an employee client.employee.photo_url(employee_work_email) client.employee.photo_url(employee_id) client.employee.photo_binary(employee_id)
Time off data
# Get time off requests filtered by a number of parameters # :id - the ID of the time off request # :action - # :employeeId - the ID of the employee you're looking for # :start - filter start date # :end - filter end date # :type - type of time off request # :status - must be one or more of the following: approved denied superceded requested canceled client.time_off.requests(:employeeId: employee_id, start: Time.now) # See who is out when. client.time_off.whos_out(Time.now, "2014-12-31")
# Find a report by its number client.report.find(report_number, format = "JSON", fd = true)
# Get fields client.meta.fields # Get lists client.meta.lists # Get tables client.meta.tables # Get users # Note: this is all uses in the system, whereas client.employee.all only gets active employees client.meta.users
