Request: the code to send to the API

Send an API request to the following endpoint in order to publish a post on behalf of a LinkedIn user:

The <identity_token> is obtained whenever one of your users connects using his LinkedIn account.

To be able to use this endpoint LinkedIn must be fully configured for your OneAll Site and the user must have given consent to publish content on his behalf when he logged in with LinkedIn.
