Error when scheduling posts to LinkedIn

Error when scheduling posts to LinkedIn



My scheduled social media posts have been posting on time with no issues until just recently.  My posts to LinkedIn are giving me an error but no reason for the error.  I have deleted our LinkedIn account and reconnected in an attempt to hopefully get it back to working but have not had any success.  Any chance you may be able to provide some guidance on how to correct this?





Re: Error when scheduling posts to LinkedIn

Hello @AbbieW14 ,


We've noticed some odd, intermittent LinkedIn API issues for some accounts. Generally we've seen the failed posts go through when "Retry" is clicked after the failure, which seems to be the case here. Would you be able to confirm if the post is showing as successfully posted now for the one you did singularly? Or would you be able to check your connected LinkedIn account to see if the post made it through?


If the issue continues where you're forced to hit retry for every single LI post you make, please let us know. That way we can see if our higher level technical team can take a closer look. Regardless, I did make sure to attach the applicable service request to your account for tracking, in case the issue persists.
