Configuring the LinkedIn developer account API

  1. Open a browser and log in to your LinkedIn account.
  2. Navigate to the following URL:

    https://developer.linkedin.com/documents/authentication

    Select Create Application.

  4. Select that you have read and agree to the LinkedIn API Terms of Use and select Submit.

  5. The next screen shows your Client ID and Client secret.
  6. Take note of the Client ID and Client secret as they are required when configuring the captive portal on the FortiAuthenticator.

  7. Under Authorized Redirect URLs, enter the following:
  8. https://fortiauthenticator.example.com/social/complete/linkedin-oauth2/

    Note that the FortiAuthenticator needs to be able to access the Internet.

    The client ID and client secret can be accessed at any time on the LinkedIn developer account, but it may be a good idea to copy them to a secure location.
