Skills

Skills are used in Kantata OX to describe capabilities of users for the purposes of resource planning. They can be associated with a user through a Skill Membership. A user can be associated with up to 200 skills. This model includes categories such as 'Skill', 'Language', 'Certification' and 'Other'.

Fetching a list of Skills

The Skills endpoint provides a list of every Skill that belongs to the Account of the User making the request. The response will contain an array of Skill objects, sorted alphabetically by the name attribute.

NOTE: You cannot create more than 3000 skills per account.

This endpoint returns structured Skill objects. As with all Kantata OX API endpoints, the returned data will be referenced in sorted order in the results array and will be indexed by ID in the skills top-level JSON key. Please see our Response Format section for more information.
