Retrieve Linkedin User’s Information

I’m currently developing a NodeJS App and am intending to retrieve Linkedin user’s experience, education and skills. When doing so I get the error below. How can I avoid this error?

Here the workflow followed that leads to the error: http://3.14.113.64:4000/

InternalOAuthError: failed to fetch user profile

Answer

Looks like this is a known issue of this library: https://github.com/auth0/passport-linkedin-oauth2/issues/75

this module that has not been updated to linkedin API 2.0 as reported in this issue

Switch this for fork:

npm install @sokratis/passport-linkedin-oauth2

And replace the require / import statement:

var LinkedInStrategy = require('@sokratis/passport-linkedin-oauth2').Strategy;
