Describe the issue/error/question
I would like to use n8n to automate posts to LinkedIn. However, when I include a mention ie.
@Trevor Sullivan, it doesn’t register as a link to an entity. Secondly, when I include a link, there is no link preview on the LinkedIn post, like there is when you manually post on the website.
Question: How can I post to LinkedIn from n8n workflows, and include valid “mentions” and link previews?
Please share the workflow

Information on your n8n setup
n8n version: latest
- Database you’re using (default: SQLite):
- Running n8n with the execution process [own(default), main]:
Running n8n via [Docker, npm, n8n.cloud, desktop app]: Docker
To be honest the LinkedIn needs a bit of love, When I use it part of is all good if I select the Article type and add the Original URL field.
The default type is “Text Only” which doesn’t do anything fancy.
It looks like for a mention you might need to use the Mention URN which expects something like
@[Eddy](urn:li:person:1234) for a user or
@[Devtestco] (urn:li:organization:2414183) for an organisation.
Awesome that’s helpful!! I’ll give it a try. Thank you!
