Social Login with LinkedIn - Adobe Experience Manager (AEM)
Social login is the ability to present the option for a site visitor to sign in with their social accounts like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and etc. AEM supports OOTB Facebook and Twitter Social logins but LinkedIn login is not supported OOTB and need to build custom Provider to support the log in flow for websites.
AEM internally uses the scribejava module to support the Social login flows, scribejava supports multiple providers and both OAuth 1.0 and OAuth 2.0 protocols. The scribe version shipped with AEM won’t support the LinkedIn OAuth 2.0 authentication flow but OAuth 1.0 is supported.
This tutorial explains the steps and the customization required to support the LinkedIn social login in AEM as Cloud version, the same should work with minimal change for other AEM versions.
