LinkedIn post error

I’m getting this return when trying to post on Linkedin with an image

ERROR: Your request is invalid or could not be processed by the service ERROR :: /distribution/targetEnties :: unrecognized field found but not allowed ERROR :: /content/media/description :: unrecognized field found but not allowed

I’m using version 0.229.0

My credential is ok, and the last post was made on 02/06/2023

Hey @Claudio_Balbino,

There are a few other posts about this as well, are you posting as a user or an organisation and are you using a verified business account if it is an organisation?

Hi Jon,

I am posting as an organization and verification has been performed

It was working, I made a post on the 2nd, but yesterday I received this error

I looked at other posts here on the forum but I didn’t see anything that could help me with this

Hey @Claudio_Balbino,

At the moment we need to look at the api changes recently made to see what we need to update. I am planning to dig into this next Tuesday when I am back.


Thanks a lot @Jon . I guess many of us are blocked due to this issue. If so, will the fix be included in next release?

Hey @Mec,

Oddly enough I put in the fix for this earlier today (fix(LinkedIn Node): Fix issue with posting as user or organization by Joffcom · Pull Request #6414 · n8n-io/n8n · GitHub) and I am just waiting for the tests to pass so I can merge it for the next release.


Fantastic :slight_smile: well done. looking forward to the release @Jon . well done!

New version [email protected] got released which includes the GitHub PR 6414.

@jan Works like a charm. Confirmed. It is possible to post now.
However, this issue still persists: LinkedIn Post not showing image for URL - #65 by Mec

Basically, the image and title are not shown when the article is shared.

Hey @Mec,

I am still aware of this one and this fix isn’t for that issue.

Hey @Jon

I updated this machine to 0.233.0 but I still have a problem

Hey @Claudio_Balbino,

Give me 5 minutes I might have missed something for images

Hey @Claudio_Balbino,

Looks like the Image option no longer supports a Description, I am just popping in a PR now to fix this.
