Does anyone have stories about LinkedIn's unpredictable revoking of their API access tokens? Any details about the circumstances around how and why startups were denied API access would be helpful.
It seems like certain companies might be more at risk ( e.g. recruiting startups). But a large competitior like Jobvite has seemed to always be able to pulling their users' connections through LinkedIn API requests.
Does a startup need to develop a relationship with someone on a particular LinkedIn team to ensure the token access isn't randomly revoked at some point after launch?
We've developed a feature that consumes the LinkedIn API in accordance with their policies. One thing we are doing is saving parts of the raw response on the client side until the user has a chance to review and re-purpose the data for saving on our site.
I'm interested to know if there are any particular issues we should be thinking about in advance of a launch with regards to the LinkedIn API. We want to ensure a stable reliance on the API going forward, and would like to plan properly. Any stories or details you could share would be great.
