Hi @kitsuiwebster, I am sorry you’re having trouble. It seems n8n’s LinkedIn node does not provide the full error response from LinkedIn here, but based on your description I assume your credentials don’t allow posting on LinkedIn.

Have you followed the Associate an app with a LinkedIn Page steps and enabled both the Share on LinkedIn and Sign In with LinkedIn APIs?
