2648188 - How to generate LinkedIn API - Recruiting Marketing



When using social apply, social subscribe, or the business card LinkedIn integration, API keys need to be set up with the social network requested.  Below are the instructions for how to retrieve these.

How to configure the business card to enable social subscribe and social apply will be covered in a separate document.  The baseline configurations outlined here will enable Facebook or LinkedIn to be used on the socialmatcher or with any other social integration used by RMK/RCM integrations as product releases them.  In order to configure LinkedIn integration on the business card or social subscribe and social apply, work needs to be done within the Talent Community Setup XML.
