LinkedIn Provider for OAuth 2.0 Client

Latest Version Software License Build Status Coverage Status Quality Score Total Downloads

This package provides LinkedIn OAuth 2.0 support for the PHP League's OAuth 2.0 Client.


To install, use composer:

composer require league/oauth2-linkedin


Usage is the same as The League's OAuth client, using \League\OAuth2\Client\Provider\LinkedIn as the provider.

Authorization Code Flow

$provider = new League\OAuth2\Client\Provider\LinkedIn([
    'clientId'          => '{linkedin-client-id}',
    'clientSecret'      => '{linkedin-client-secret}',
    'redirectUri'       => '',

if (!isset($_GET['code'])) {

    // If we don't have an authorization code then get one
    $authUrl = $provider->getAuthorizationUrl();
    $_SESSION['oauth2state'] = $provider->getState();
    header('Location: '.$authUrl);

// Check given state against previously stored one to mitigate CSRF attack
} elseif (empty($_GET['state']) || ($_GET['state'] !== $_SESSION['oauth2state'])) {

    exit('Invalid state');

} else {

    // Try to get an access token (using the authorization code grant)
    $token = $provider->getAccessToken('authorization_code', [
        'code' => $_GET['code']

    // Optional: Now you have a token you can look up a users profile data
    try {

        // We got an access token, let's now get the user's details
        $user = $provider->getResourceOwner($token);

        // Use these details to create a new profile
        printf('Hello %s!', $user->getFirstname());

    } catch (Exception $e) {

        // Failed to get user details
        exit('Oh dear...');

    // Use this to interact with an API on the users behalf
    echo $token->getToken();

Managing Scopes

When creating your LinkedIn authorization URL, you can specify the state and scopes your application may authorize.

$options = [
    'scope' => ['r_basicprofile','r_emailaddress'] // array or string

$authorizationUrl = $provider->getAuthorizationUrl($options);

If neither are defined, the provider will utilize internal defaults.

At the time of authoring this documentation, the following scopes are available.

  • r_basicprofile
  • r_emailaddress
  • rw_company_admin
  • w_share
