Implementation Testing Tools

Integrate the right way

Ease your HR Open Standards Implementation with the available testing tools. Those interested in certifying implementations with HR Open Standards are encouraged to self-test using our testing tools.

3.X Testing

The 3.X CertificationTestbed allows you to check XML instances for validity against the HR-XML 3.0, 3.1, or 3.2 specifications. You can test your HR-XML content by either browsing to your file or pasting it into the form for submission.


2.X Testing

The 2_3, 2_4, and 2_5 HR-XML releases are hosted online, via Amazon Web Services. This web hosted content may be used for pre-testing only.

Available testing buckets may be found at the following locations:

The bucket architecture is identical to the 2.5 release downloads found in the HR Open Standards Store. While the online source cannot be directly browsed, it may be accessed for pre-testing validation.

For example, if your product calls Candidate from the 2_5 release, your local instance would use the following path from Amazon AWS:

This can be seen in the following namespace from a Candidate instance. The Amazon path is listed under the path portion of xsi:schemaLocation.

<Candidate xmlns=""




To directly explore the architecture of the 2.X HR-XML release, please locally download the environment from the Online Store. Please note that the online store no longer offers a download for 2_3 or 2_4; if using these releases, you may want to download 2_5 to become familiar with the file structure.
