CTS client libraries

This page shows how to get started with the Cloud Client Libraries for the Cloud Talent Solution API. Client libraries make it easier to access Google Cloud APIs from a supported language. Although you can use Google Cloud APIs directly by making raw requests to the server, client libraries provide simplifications that significantly reduce the amount of code you need to write.

Read more about the Cloud Client Libraries and the older Google API Client Libraries in Client libraries explained.

Client libraries for more languages are coming soon.

Install the client library

C++

See Setting up a C++ development environment for details about this client library's requirements and install dependencies.

C#

If you are using Visual Studio 2017 or higher, open nuget package manager window and type the following:

Install-Package Google.Apis

If you are using .NET Core command-line interface tools to install your dependencies, run the following command:

dotnet add package Google.Apis

For more information, see Setting Up a C# Development Environment.

Go

go get cloud.google.com/go/talent/apiv4

For more information, see Setting Up a Go Development Environment.

Java

If you are using Maven, add the following to your pom.xml file. For more information about BOMs, see The Google Cloud Platform Libraries BOM.

<dependencyManagement>
  <dependencies>
    <dependency>
      <groupId>com.google.cloud</groupId>
      <artifactId>libraries-bom</artifactId>
      <version>26.40.0</version>
      <type>pom</type>
      <scope>import</scope>
    </dependency>
  </dependencies>
</dependencyManagement>

<dependencies>
  <dependency>
    <groupId>com.google.cloud</groupId>
    <artifactId>google-cloud-talent</artifactId>
  </dependency>

If you are using Gradle, add the following to your dependencies:

implementation 'com.google.cloud:google-cloud-talent:2.46.0'

If you are using sbt, add the following to your dependencies:

libraryDependencies += "com.google.cloud" % "google-cloud-talent" % "2.46.0"

If you're using Visual Studio Code, IntelliJ, or Eclipse, you can add client libraries to your project using the following IDE plugins:

The plugins provide additional functionality, such as key management for service accounts. Refer to each plugin's documentation for details.

For more information, see Setting Up a Java Development Environment.

Node.js

npm install @google-cloud/talent

For more information, see Setting Up a Node.js Development Environment.

PHP

composer require google/apiclient

For more information, see Using PHP on Google Cloud.

Python

pip install --upgrade google-api-python-client

For more information, see Setting Up a Python Development Environment.

Ruby

gem install google-api-client

For more information, see Setting Up a Ruby Development Environment.

Set up authentication

To authenticate calls to Google Cloud APIs, client libraries support Application Default Credentials (ADC); the libraries look for credentials in a set of defined locations and use those credentials to authenticate requests to the API. With ADC, you can make credentials available to your application in a variety of environments, such as local development or production, without needing to modify your application code.

For production environments, the way you set up ADC depends on the service and context. For more information, see Set up Application Default Credentials.

For a local development environment, you can set up ADC with the credentials that are associated with your Google Account:

  1. Install and initialize the gcloud CLI.

    When you initialize the gcloud CLI, be sure to specify a Google Cloud project in which you have permission to access the resources your application needs.

  2. Configure ADC:

    gcloud auth application-default login

    A sign-in screen appears. After you sign in, your credentials are stored in the local credential file used by ADC.

Use the client library

The following example shows how to use the client library.

C++


#include "google/cloud/talent/v4/company_client.h"
#include "google/cloud/project.h"
#include <iostream>

int main(int argc, char* argv[]) try {
  if (argc != 2) {
    std::cerr << "Usage: " << argv[0] << " project-id\n";
    return 1;
  }

  namespace talent = ::google::cloud::talent_v4;
  auto client =
      talent::CompanyServiceClient(talent::MakeCompanyServiceConnection());

  auto const project = google::cloud::Project(argv[1]);
  for (auto c : client.ListCompanies(project.FullName())) {
    if (!c) throw std::move(c).status();
    std::cout << c->DebugString() << "\n";
  }

  return 0;
} catch (google::cloud::Status const& status) {
  std::cerr << "google::cloud::Status thrown: " << status << "\n";
  return 1;
}

Go

import (
	"context"
	"fmt"
	"os"

	talent "cloud.google.com/go/talent/apiv4beta1"
	"cloud.google.com/go/talent/apiv4beta1/talentpb"
	"google.golang.org/api/iterator"
)

func main() {
	projectID := os.Getenv("GOOGLE_CLOUD_PROJECT")

	// Initialize job search client.
	ctx := context.Background()
	c, err := talent.NewCompanyClient(ctx)
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Printf("talent.NewCompanyClient: %v", err)
		return
	}
	defer c.Close()

	// Construct a listCompany request.
	req := &talentpb.ListCompaniesRequest{
		Parent: "projects/" + projectID,
	}

	it := c.ListCompanies(ctx, req)

	for {
		resp, err := it.Next()
		if err == iterator.Done {
			fmt.Printf("Done.\n")
			break
		}
		if err != nil {
			fmt.Printf("it.Next: %v", err)
			return
		}
		fmt.Printf("Company: %v\n", resp.GetName())
	}
}

Java


import com.google.cloud.talent.v4.Company;
import com.google.cloud.talent.v4.CompanyServiceClient;
import com.google.cloud.talent.v4.ListCompaniesRequest;

public class JobSearchListCompanies {

  public static void listCompanies() throws IOException {
    // TODO(developer): Replace these variables before running the sample.
    String projectId = "your-project-id";
    String tenantId = "your-tenant-id";
    listCompanies(projectId, tenantId);
  }

  // List Companies.
  public static void listCompanies(String projectId, String tenantId) throws IOException {
    // Initialize client that will be used to send requests. This client only needs to be created
    // once, and can be reused for multiple requests. After completing all of your requests, call
    // the "close" method on the client to safely clean up any remaining background resources.
    try (CompanyServiceClient companyServiceClient = CompanyServiceClient.create()) {
      TenantName parent = TenantName.of(projectId, tenantId);

      ListCompaniesRequest request =
          ListCompaniesRequest.newBuilder().setParent(parent.toString()).build();

      for (Company responseItem : companyServiceClient.listCompanies(request).iterateAll()) {
        System.out.format("Company Name: %s%n", responseItem.getName());
        System.out.format("Display Name: %s%n", responseItem.getDisplayName());
        System.out.format("External ID: %s%n", responseItem.getExternalId());
      }
    }
  }
}

Node.js


const talent = require('@google-cloud/talent').v4;

/**
 * List Companies
 *
 * @param projectId {string} Your Google Cloud Project ID
 * @param tenantId {string} Identifier of the Tenant
 */
function sampleListCompanies(projectId, tenantId) {
  const client = new talent.CompanyServiceClient();
  // Iterate over all elements.
  // const projectId = 'Your Google Cloud Project ID';
  // const tenantId = 'Your Tenant ID (using tenancy is optional)';
  const formattedParent = client.tenantPath(projectId, tenantId);

  client
    .listCompanies({parent: formattedParent})
    .then(responses => {
      const resources = responses[0];
      for (const resource of resources) {
        console.log(`Company Name: ${resource.name}`);
        console.log(`Display Name: ${resource.displayName}`);
        console.log(`External ID: ${resource.externalId}`);
      }
