As previously announced, LinkedIn is now enforcing redirect URLs rule for OAuth 2.0 applications: More information. If you have any questions, please post to this thread in our forums: Thread for questions OAuth 2.0 Extension
LinkedIn is extending a courtesy brief period for developers to update their OAuth 2.0 redirect URLs.
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.
Share on LinkedIn
Sharing an article from your site with LinkedIn is easy. By presenting your users with a simple parameterized link, your readers will be able to share articles they find interesting to their LinkedIn network.
Typical User Flow
This is typically how a user will experience the Share link on your blog or website:
- Your user reads content on your site and wants to share it with their LinkedIn Network
- You provide a Share on LinkedIn link
- Your user clicks that link
- A 520 pixel wide by 570 pixel high window opens up showing sharing options
- If you’ve provided all the details (URL, title, summary, and source) your user will choose whether to share the article with a network or to particular connections
- If you omit some details, your user will be prompted for those details before continuing to select their distribution target. It’s always best to fully include each parameter so your user can go straight to sharing and not be slowed down by entering in data
The Share URL
All parameter values must be URL encoded.
|mini||Yes||Yes||4||Must always be true|
|url||No||Yes||1024||The permanent link to the article. Must be URL encoded|
|title||No||Yes||200||The title of the article. Must be URL encoded|
|source||No||Yes||200||The source of the article. Must be URL encoded. Example: Wired Magazine|
|summary||No||Yes||256||A brief summary of the article. Must be URL encoded. Longer titles will be truncated gracefully with ellipses.|
