[The LinkedIn People Search API is now the LinkedIn REST API. This profile is being maintained purely for historical and research purposes.]
LinkedIn is a social network service for professionals. The API LinkedIn People Search could help developers to access information about people. This is an API about personal information. As LinkedIn discloses in their website, this API is part of the Vetted Access Program. It is recommended to obtain approval from the company first. The following permissions are required: basic profile default, all or none grant, optimization for 3 permissions and permission changes. Similarly, the next calls are offered: user’s own data, user’s network data, groups data and company data. The API format is XML and requires OAuth for authentication.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
