LinkedIn Organic

Dataddo Linkedin connector enables simple API data extraction without writing a single line of code. The connector allows to access the data of the organization's page analytics data.

Permissions

When authorizing access, make sure that the user has correct permissions. To access the organization's page analytics data, the user has to have assigned ADMINISTRATOR permission. Please check the following tutorial for further details: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/linkedin/marketing/integrations/community-management/organizations/organization-access-control

Available metrics

Dataddo can extract all the metrics provided via an official API. The full list is available here:

Organization identifier

When configuring the Linkedin Organic connector, you will be asked for providing "Organization ID" parameter. To find it, please log in to your Linkedin and navigate to your company page. In your browser, you will see the URL such as https://www.linkedin.com/company/5293927/. The number 5293927 represents the organization ID which you need to supply as a parameter to the connector. Make sure you view the page as an admin

Then click on New Source in the top right corner.

From the list of connectors, choose the LinkedIn connector.

You will be redirected into the LinkedIn connector where you can select the required Dataset. If you are not sure which Dataset you need, but you, for example, know which metrics and attributes you are looking for, you can use the Search for Dataset function on the left or you can browse through all the possible attributes and metrics for each Dataset by clicking on the right arrow.

Selecting Dataset

Missing metric or attribute?

If you feel like some metrics or attributes that you would like to use are missing, you can contact us or create a ticket and we will add it for you if possible.


Once you select a Dataset, you can start with the configuration by clicking on Next. First of all, you will need to give Dataddo authorization to connect with your LinkedIn account. Once you click on Authorize, you will be redirected to your account to log in.

Authorizing LinkedIn

The last step consists of selecting your snapshotting preferences. To help you with the snapshot mapping, we make it easier for you to create a connection based on your destination.

  • Click on the option "Data Warehouse", If you want your data to be sent to warehouse storage, like MySQL, Big Query, or PostgreSQL.
  • If you are already experienced with the snapshotting setup, you can go ahead and process without selecting any of the two options.

Snapshotting

You can check whether the suggested setting suits you, or you can make amends and configure your snapshotting preferences, choosing Snapshotting frequency, and Snapshotting retention yourself. 

Snapshotting

Now you are all set and ready. Click on See Preview to review all the selections made by you before saving the Data Source using the buttons in the top right corner - either Save and Exit or Save & Create Flow. To create a flow, please follow our Creating a data flow guide.
