LinkedIn w_share permission


Hi, I cannot seem to activate this permission inside Auth0 as I want to use the LinkedIn access token to post on the user’s page. Is it possible to create a flag for this under the social connections dialog?


Hi… Any help with this?


:wave: @customautosys we can request a scope that does not exist in the Auth0 dashboard by passing them under connectionScopes in Lock (assuming you are using Lock):

var lockOptions = {
  allowedConnections: ['linkedin'],
  auth: {
    connectionScopes: {
      linkedin: ['w_share']

I just tried using the Hosted Login Page and I got prompted for the permission Post updates to LinkedIn as you with the w_share scope :slight_smile:


It works!

Thank you so much for your help!
