Where do I find my person name or ID for Linkedin

Hi all, hope you can help.

I’m trying to set up a workflow to post to Linkedin from Airtable

I’ve managed to successfully post to my company page but can’t seem to figure out how to post as myself.

It’s asking for “Person name or ID” but I’ve no idea where I get this info

any of you wonderful people able to assist a newbie?



hello @weareingenius

The easiest way is to use this API: Profile API - LinkedIn | Microsoft Learn

Thanks Barn - appreciate it

I have been frantically searching for answers and did come across the Profile API - what do I do with it in n8n?

I think the n8n currently has lack of functionality in regards to linkedin API. You can access the Profile API endpoint with usual HTTP node though

are there any supporting docs/tutorials anywhere do you know?

Did you try the last part of the url to your profile? weareingenius if your profile page was

Yes - doesn’t work as that’s the company page, I can post to that fine, it’s my own profile I’m trying to post to

to get your own profile, you will need to use HTTP request node and use get request to the https://api.linkedin.com/v2/me. But in order to do so, you will need the access_token, that can act on behalf of you (basically, the same way as credentials works in the LinkedIn node)
