Once logged into your LinkedIn account, go to http://developer.linkedin.com and click the “API Keys” link on the “Support” menu item. Click the “Add New Application” button and fill out the information on the form to create your new LinkedIn app.
When filling out the form about your Application, make sure that you put this value in the "OAuth 2.0 Redirect URLs" field: http://[yoursitedomain]/Account/ThirdPartyLoginCallback.
When you’re done filling out the form, click the “Add Application” button, accept the LinkedIn Terms of Service agreement, and you’ve successfully created your LinkedIn app. Keep your LinkedIn tab/window open, since you’ll need some of that information to save into Answerbase.
Now go to your Answerbase administration site in your other tab/window and click on the “System Settings” link in the main navigation. Once you’re in the System Settings area, select the “Third Party Login” option to view your settings for enabling LinkedIn login and registration for your users.
In the Third Party Login area, you are able to turn LinkedIn login/registration “on” or “off”. Make sure that option is turned “on” to enable that for your users.
Under the area that is titled “Use your own LinkedIn Application”, you’re going to need to enter the information from the LinkedIn Application that you just created. Go to your open LinkedIn tab/window and find the “API Key” and “Secret Key”. Copy those items, one at a time, and bring them back to paste into the related fields in your Answerbase administration area.
Once you have filled out both of the fields, click the “Save” button on the bottom of the page in your Answerbase administration area and you’re done!
