Cloud CMS provides integrated authentication and single-sign-on (SSO) with LinkedIn.

This page describes the authentication provider available for the Cloud CMS Application Server that enables your mobile or web applications as well as the Cloud CMS user interface or API to authenticate against LinkedIn.

For more information on Authentication within the App Server, see App Server Authentication / SSO.

LinkedIn API Keys

You will need to configure a LinkedIn application and have the following information available:

  • apiKey - the LinkedIn API key
  • apiSecret - the LinkedIn API secret


Here is a simple configuration where we provide our API Keys and fallback on the defaults for everything else.

"auth": {
    "providers": {
        "myProvider": {
            "type": "linkedin",
            "config": {
                "apiKey": "{LinkedIn API Key}",
                "apiSecret": "{LinkedIn API Secret}"
