I tried to get my users connection count
. I checked linkedin's privilege setting(https://developer.linkedin.com/docs/fields/basic-profile
), it says num-connection will be provided. But when
I trying to retrieve user's contact with this API: /users//contacts.json
. And the result is always 400. And in the contacts object, it says 500 and "the response could not be parsed" .
Hope someone can help me with this issue.
Thank you very much!!
This is most likely due to the changes in LinkedIn API, which requires you to request a special 'partner' agreement with LinkedIn to access this data.
Apologies for the unclear message.
Thanks for your report!
In my case, I don't need user's contancts' info. I just need their connection number. And this number is accessible in linkedin basic profile.
So, is there a way to only get connection-number?
