        LinkedIn is a rarely used authentication provider, and I am not sure if there is a solid solution around for DNN. What I found is that it uses OAuth, and I found a Blog post from some years ago here: https://www.dnnsoftware.com/wiki/co...-providers, but LinkedIn is missing.

        Obviously, someone tried to publish one on GitHub (see https://github.com/otemnov/DNNAuth.LinkedIn), but there is no release. Maybe you can contact the author and ask him about the project... Maybe it is still alive.

        Happy DNNing!

          Hi no9be,

          I'm a leader of the 'Auth0 Provider' project that Timo mention. I just tested it with LinkedIn and seems that this is working (at lest on my sandbox :)
