  • Reinitializing LinkedIn


    LinkedIn updated it's oauth integration to be more granular a while ago.
    My issue is that I use LinkedIn in for 3 things:
    1. Registration
    2. Login
    3. Profile import
    4. Friend invite

    For Registration, I need the email address (r_emailaddress scope), for Friend invite, I need the right to send messages to other Linkedin users (r_messages scope).

    When people register or import a profile, they will be disinclined to accept a connection with an r_messages scope (I don't want you to send messages on my behalf!). However, when they are inviting friends they are more likely to understand that this right is necessary.

    Problem is:
    * Connections are stored
    * Connections are cached by Linkedin

    This means that the configuration of scope depends on the point in the website that it is initialized.
    Is there a way to force Linkedin to reinitialize the connection, much like with google's: approval_prompt=force), so that during Friend invite, I can "add" the r_messages right?

    Kind regards,
