Support » Plugin: LinkedIn Profile Synchronizer Tool » Error during token request

    Hi,

    I have tried to install the plugin on two separate websites, but get the same error on both sites.

    There is a problem getting an authorization code from LinkedInĀ®:
    Unexpected result from the server “https://api.linkedin.com/uas/oauth/requestToken” (401) while requesting a request token. This may be caused by incorrect OAuth Identification, a slow internet connection or a problem at LinkedInĀ®. Retry in a couple of minutes if you did not change anything

    Any ideas?

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delay in responding, but I’m quite busy at the moment. You wrote about an error popping up on multiple sites. Are both of them on the same operating system?

    The 401 error occurs more often; I’ve seen multiple reports about it. Most of the time, it just boils down to a copy-paste error on the OAuth token and secret. Are you sure that you’ve got the right value on the right element?

    Here’s what you can do to verify:
    Click “Forget OAuth” on the plugin configuration page and open the LinkedIn Developer Network Application Details page again. Copy the value of API Key found on the LI Application Details page to the OAuth Token field found on the LinkedIn Profile Synchronization Tool section and copy the value of the Secret Key to the OAuth Secret. Then click Save again, then try to fetch your profile again.

    Please let me know whether this fixed the error you’re seeing.

    Hi,

    Thanks for getting back. Yes, it worked and downloaded my LinkedIn resume in quite an acceptable format. Nice.

    Thanks!

    I updated the instructions page at http://www.tenberge-ict.nl/tools/wordpress/lips/#setup. The registration should be more obvious now.
