REST Console

This page allows you to make LinkedIn REST requests using a web interface. It allows you to explore our API without needing to write an application of your own. This lets you see what resources and fields we expose. It is also a great way to debug requests that aren't working properly for you.

Quick Start

  1. Click the Padlock icon to authenticate yourself.
  2. Click on the left sidebar to select a REST URL. You may need to edit it to fill in a value, such as a member id or public profile URL. (Or enter a URL of your own in the Query URL box.)
  3. Click the dropdown arrow next to GET to select a HTTP Method other than GET.
  4. Click on the HTTP Verb (such as GET) to make the REST request.
  5. Look at the Response. Click on the Request tab to see the HTTP request.
