If you have any questions, please post to this thread in our forums: Thread for questions. OAuth 2.0 Redirection URL
Beginning Monday April 28, 2014, LinkedIn's APIs will begin enforcing OAuth 2.0 redirect URLs.
If you have any questions, please post to this thread in our forums: Thread for questions. On July 21st between 4pm and 7pm PST we will be performing platform maintenance. You may see limited performance issues during this time. We apologize for any inconveniences generated by any service interruptions. We will be performing site wide maintenance on October 10th between 8 pm and 11 pm PST. This maintenance applies to all LinkedIn sites and applications, including our APIs. You may experience limited availability of certain APIs during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please don't hesitate to reach out on our forums if you continue to experience API availability issues after the maintenance window In light of the recent disclosure of the "Poodle" SSL vulnerability, LinkedIn is joining the large number of services that have actively removed support for SSLv3, effective immediately. If you are experiencing errors related to HTTPS-based communication with our APIs, please ensure you are using a client/library that supports TLS 1.0+ instead of SSLv3 to avoid disruption. Attention, developers! We have transitioned to StackOverflow for forum-based support. Learn more about this change.
Developer Spotlight: Scoop.it
Author’s note: This is the first in a series of blog posts showcasing developers using our APIs and highlighting best practices.
Scoop.it is a social media publishing tool that helps you reach interest-based audiences by enabling you to easily curate content on a given topic. With Scoop.it, you can find relevant content faster, edit it easily and publish it in 1-click to engage your followers and acquire new ones via social discovery. Unlike similar tools, Scoop.it is uniquely organized around topics as opposed to the curators themselves.
Utilizing Sign In with LinkedIn, users can create a Scoop.it account by leveraging their LinkedIn identity. This simplifies the sign-up process and eliminates the need to provide additional data, including e-mail validation. In addition, the user’s profile is automatically populated within the site. Users can also log-in to Scoop.it with their LinkedIn account, whether they’ve created it using the LinkedIn APIs as described above or have previously bound their pre-existing Scoop.it and LinkedIn accounts.
With the Share API, the Share to LinkedIn option is prominently displayed in the publishing window, making it easy for Scoop.it users to distribute compelling articles with the world’s largest professional network.
“Our integration with LinkedIn is a natural fit and complement to our business. With most of our active users utilizing Scoop.it for professional reasons, LinkedIn is a great platform to publish to and now they can easily sign in and share content with their professional network in an engaging way. And with LinkedIn’s massive scale, even more professionals will be exposed to Scoop.it’s value proposition.” - Guillaume Decugis, CEO and co-founder Scoop.it
