By integrating your Docebo Learning Management System with LinkedIn, your users can log into their Docebo platforms using their LinkedIn login credentials. This manual will provide a step-by-step guide for your integration.
Please Note: Be sure to double check that an email address used to log into LinkedIn corresponds with a user that already exists in your Docebo platform (the username and the password doesn't need to match, but the email address should belong to a pre-existing user). This way, a user can proceed with access to his or her Docebo platform without errors. If the email address used for LinkedIn does not corresponding with a user in Docebo, then a user will not be able to access his or her Docebo platform using his or her LinkedIn credentials.
You do not need a LinkedIn Premium account for this integration.
