How can one gets the list of projects of an user?

Hello, all.

Is this possible to get the list of projects of an user via REST API?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Adam,

Our apologies, but this is not possible via the API at this time.

Do you have an estimate when will that be possible? Or it wouldn't ever be possible? :)

Unfortunately there's nothing set in stone yet for a feature release. Rest assured that as soon as we make updates to our APIs that our documentation and blog will both be updated.

Thanks,
Kamyar

Hi Kamyar,

I am also looking for an API that shows the project of an user. Is there still nothing set in stone yet for this feature release?

Thanks,

Rutger

Hi Kamyar,

If developer desire carries any traction, I too would love to see the API expose a user's projects. On a professional networking site, the concept of projects is a critical one to expose and carries so many implications for use in outside platforms.

Regards,
Brad

We do not have any updates on this feature right now. Whenever we have new updates we will definitely post it on our forums and the developers blog to inform our developer community. Stay tuned in!

I'd really like to get hold of projects in the API too.

Count me in for a vote on this as well :) I think there maybe concerns when "team members" are defined by the user in the project (permissions/privacy of those "other" users), so perhaps just Project details themselves (no "People")...Thanks!

So, for LinkedIn to manage expectations, it may be good to say something about the reason for not doing this. 1: Other more important things to do. 2: Not good for the current business model. 3: Project-feature not finished, and not good to make an API you would break later. 4: other reasons.

Still cheering for this (possible) feature =)

Request for projects works, but still is undocumented.
Try request (with full profile permissions):
https://api.linkedin.com/v1/people/~:(first-name,projects)

It returns for me:
...
["projects"]=>
array(2) {
["_total"]=>
int(4)
["values"]=>
array(4) {
[0]=>
array(4) {
["description"]=>
string(3) "xxx"
["id"]=>
int(192)
["name"]=>
string(3) "xxx"
["url"]=>
string(3) "xxx"
}
[1]=> ...

Official documentation on it would be also good.

I would also request official documentation, the project is connected to a position in the webpage. However when I request projects using the Rest API, this "relation" is not available. Either the relation to the position or the name of the company that the position or project is related to would be helpful.
