I have installed Drupal linkedin Integration 7.x-1.x-dev and Oauth module .

I have entered the details like api key and secret key and all other settings properly

Now when I login using linkedin using the option as shown in the image I am redirected to the page as shown in the image

enter image description here enter image description here but after I enter linkedin credentials I am redirected to following page with no drupal user created enter image description here

what is the reason for that?

The LinkedIn Integration module won't automatically create a new user account for you. From step 5 of the directions in the module's README:

Usage : Users will have to associate their LinkedIn account with their local Drupal account (at user/%user/edit/linkedin) to use any functionality provided by submodules.

So if you log in via LinkedIn with a LinkedIn account that isn't yet associated with a Drupal user account, you still need to create the new Drupal user account, and then the module will automatically associate the LinkedIn account with the new Drupal account in a submit handler that it attaches to the user register form.

  • So by this module only if there is a drupal user with email id same as that provided into the linkedin will be able to synch ??

  • Sorry I'm not too familiar with the module (we looked at it briefly but didn't end up using it)... I believe it saves the user association with a LinkedIn oauth token, not with an email address.

  • By moving to the link user/%user/edit/linkedin I was able to associate myself linkedin and I could login using Linkedin Thanks a lot
