Setting up Linkedin Singup

Learn how to set up LINKEDIN Login through this tutorial video or could follow the steps mentioned below:

 

 

In a Panther marketplace, users can create a Panther user account and log in using their  LinkedIn account. When using their LinkedIn credentials, users don’t need to remember a  separate username and password for Panther. Their profile picture is automatically imported  from LinkedIn.

If you would like to enable that feature, you will need to create a LinkedIn Sign In app and  configure your marketplace to use this app. Creating a LinkedIn Sign In app is free. Follow  the instructions below to set this up.  

IMPORTANT! When creating a LinkedIn Sign In app for your marketplace, please do NOT  add anything that is not specifically indicated in this instruction. Doing so might create some  issues and prevent you from finishing the setup.  

Create and set up a LinkedIn Sign In app

1. Go to https://www.linkedin.com/developers/apps/new.
2. Log in with your LinkedIn account (you may have to register as a developer if you don’t have a LinkedIn account already).
3. Name your app (for example your marketplace name).
4. Enter your company name (you can use your own name or marketplace name too).
