Exit Stage Left – Simply Hired Ceases Service
The one thing about creating and maintaining a contributed module that integrates a third-party API is that sooner or later, that API may cease to exist. This, unfortunately, is the case for the SimplyHired jobs module.
On May 27, 2016, I received the following email from Simply Hired job portal with the following notice about the termination of their Partnership Program which includes the API for which SimplyHired was built upon.
Your company and Simply Hired are currently parties to the Simply Hired Partner Terms of Service ("Agreement"), under which Simply Hired is providing job content and related services to your company.
Simply Hired hereby notifies your company that it is terminating the Agreement effective in 30 days, on June 26th, 2016. We are terminating the Agreement because we are suspending our Partnership Program for all publishers.
There will be no interruption in services between now and June 26th. All payments will be processed and paid under the terms of the Agreement.
Please refer to the FAQ below for additional details. Our partnership team can assist with any needs you may have with respect to this transition process.
Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any other questions.
The Simply Hired Partner Team
If you are using the Simply Hired module on your site, you are encouraged to disable and uninstall the module prior to June 26th, 2016 as the module will be marked as obsolete and no longer be maintained. This really kinda sucks because I have just started the Drupal 8 port.
