LinkedIn People Search Web Parts for SharePoint 2010

Earlier this week I created my first public repository on GitHub: LinkedIn people search web parts for SharePoint 2010. The project consists of a number of web parts that can be used to perform people search using LinkedIn JavaScript API, display the results and even refine the returned profiles similar to the way SharePoint people search works. It is a sandboxed solution since all of the functionality is client-side and is implemented in JavaScript/jQuery and currently contains the following web parts:

  • LinkedIn People Search Box
  • LinkedIn People Search Refinement
  • LinkedIn People Search Results
  • LinkedIn People Search Statistics

Follow the usage instructions to build a LinkedIn people search page that looks and feels like SharePoint people search and feel free to send me your feedback.

    I am getting 403- Access denied error when I try to search people. I have got an api_key from Likedin developer portal.

    I get the error at line :
    IN.API.Raw(url).result(function (result) in Peoplesearchbox.ascx.

    Please help me. Thanks

      @Anjani, the source code for the project hasn’t been updated in almost 2 years and is likely out-of-date by now. I’d refer to the resources available on the LinkedIn developer portal for proper usage of the current version of their API.

        Thanks Vassili. I will try to look up in the latest documentation.
