LinkedIn HTTP requests fail
10 November 2011
When a new user registeres a HTTP request is needed to grab their profile data. This fails with "Unknown authentication scheme error" due to the HTTP request URL structure being changed and validated differently on LinkedIns end.
LinkedIn cookie is completely empty which is why the oauth token can't be retrieved.
Cookie isn't empty, but it won't json_decode for some reason. Need to investigate why it won't decode.
When retrieving cookie it needs _CB_ALLOWRAW. The cookie it self should be raw. When obtaining parameters from the cookie we clean it then. This resolved the cookie failing to decode.
- Status changed from New to Resolved
- % Done changed from 0 to 100
Issue was simply with how the cookie was being processed. New getCookie function resolves all the above problems and allows properly signed HTTP requests.
- Target version set to 2.0.0
- Status changed from Resolved to Closed
