Salesforce - linkedIn Integration

Hi,

 

My requirement is to integrate salesforce with Linkedin and to show the shared connection between two contacts in a VF Page.

 

I have done the first step and generated the oauth_token and  in the oauth_callback, i have given the URL of Site with a VF page and same controller.

 

So, i generated a URL in the code as

 

LinkedAuthUri='https://api.linkedin.com/uas/oauth/authenticate?oauth_token='+unAuthorisedToken+'&oauth_callback='+oauth_callback1+'';


It gives me the URL as

 

https://api.linkedin.com/uas/oauth/authenticate?oauth_token=968c26de-8423-49ff-bab2-94fcfed60f88&oauth_callback=https%3A%2F%2social95-developer-edition.ap1.force.comer

If user validate this by clicking the link, it takes him to the site which i gave in oauth_callback and in the URL i get

 

oauthVerifier and oauthToken .

 

 

 

 

My problem is to get the oauthVerifier and oauthToken from the URL  so that i can send it in the request again.

 

i tried using ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('oauth_verifier');


but it is coming as null because when the user verfies it  and then it takes it to the site i gave in oauth_callback. the controller is not getting instantiated again.

 

 

Any suggestion would be helpful.

 

 

Thanks,

Vineet
