Vetted API Access
I'd like to announce an adjustment to our developer program aimed at improving the health of our overall developer ecosystem and ensuring the quality of experience for LinkedIn’s members.
Introducing the Vetted API Process
- New applications: New applications will not be able to call the People Search and Jobs APIs without going through the new vetted API process detailed above.
- Current low volume applications: We will adjust People Search and Jobs APIs throttles for low volume applications to 250 calls/day. We have found that this more than meets the needs of most current applications. Current low volume applications do not need to go through the vetting process unless you wish to increase the volume of calls from 250 calls/day to 100,000 calls/day.
- Current high volume applications: We have pre-vetted applications that would be impacted by these changes. We will contact the ones where we are not preserving their higher limits to discuss next steps.
The above changes will only impact applications that use People Search and Jobs APIs. Developers can continue to get immediate access to our Profile, Sharing, and other APIs after joining our Developer Program.
If you have any questions on this then feel free to jump on this forum thread.
