LinkedIn Adapter Overview

The LinkedIn Adapter is used to report against information resident in the LinkedIn environment. You can configure the LinkedIn Adapter using the Reporting Server Web Console. The adapter requires a connection, which stores the access token. A valid LinkedIn access token is needed to issue LinkedIn API calls. The token is associated with a LinkedIn application and a specific LinkedIn member. The access token is valid for 60 days after which a new access token would need to be obtained and configured.

The connection page shows permissions that will be granted to the LinkedIn application. You can uncheck permissions that should not be granted. The connection process will use only checked permissions. Authentication will take place even if no permissions are granted.
