This Plugin provides an option for visitors to login with their Linkedin account. In the original Liferay login form, a user will be provided with a Linkedin sign in button.
User will be directed to Linkedin and asked for approval.
Redirected back to Liferay this plugin will use some of the Linkedin profile data to create a Liferay user using Linkedin's primary email address otherwise an autogenerated email address will be used.
User remains logged in according to Liferay's Password policy.
Subsequent visits, a user wil be able to login with Linkedin and existing Liferay user profile.

Key features:
  • Allows users to login via Linkedin
  • New user created in Liferay with information retrieved from Linkedin

Profile information gathered from Linkedin: Name (First, Maiden, Last), Date of birth, Industry, Company, Position, Profile image, Email address

  • Specify Linkedin application Key and Secret obtainable at Linkedin.
  • Show profile form for new user

In case of logout from liferay, application does not logout from Linkedin, so if autologin is enabled by the Administrator, you will be autologged-in next time visiting the Liferay login form.
Due to PACL limitation, importing user image is not supported in current version.

This plugin uses linkedin javascript api. So it is needed to mention correct "JavaScript API domain" while creating/configuring application in linkedin.
