LinkedIn - Generate Token

This bot is based in the LinkedIn Authorization Code Flow (3-legged OAuth). It executes the OAuth2 access token request “oauth/v2/accessToken” to the URL provided by LinkedIn. It uses a “grant_type” parameter with “authorization_code” type for the token generation. This bot doesn’t support the generation of long expiration time token (using refresh token) as LinkedIn asks for the user to pass a LinkedIn internal authorization process to do so. However, the expiration time for the token is by default 60 days.

 You can use this bot to:

  • Generate and refresh LinkedIn´s Token
  • Connect with the API service


 This task is compatible with:
