I asked this in the thread below, but I think it got lost among other posts:
Can someone from LinkedIn tell us when the new scope parameters ever be rolled out to existing (old) apps? Since a different LinkedID member ID is generated for the same user on different apps, it's not as simple as just swapping Apps for everyone.
Can you please let us know what is the rollout period for the new scope permissions to older apps?
We need to know as we are the developers of a LinkedIn add-on for the Joomla Content Manangement System (CMS). It's currently used on thousands of Joomla powered websites, which means there are thousands of sites with the 'old' apps on them that we support. We have a release coming out that will support the new scope parameter and ability to fetch email and other fields using it. However, we need to have the right message to send to our customers on how to support the new email fields, or at least, when it will be supported.
More information about our app can be found at:
Again, creating a new app isn't really an option as there's no way to 'link' the old Member ID from one app to a new Member ID from a new app. If I'm wrong here, just let me know. Otherwise, please let us know when it's possible to upgrade old apps to new apps without getting a new App ID / Key.
