We are excited to announce today that LinkedIn has been added as a supported identity provider inJanrain Engage (formerly RPX). You can check out LinkUp for an example site that has added LinkedIn as a sign in option. LinkUp is a fast-growing job search engine that easily configured its sign in widget to support LinkedIn:
LinkedIn has an active member base of over 50 million business professionals, and further integration with their platform is on the way for RPX. In the coming weeks, users on your website will be able to import their LinkedIn contacts, and publish their activities from your site to their LinkedIn status.
Here are a few other recent feature updates to RPX:
- Updated Sign in Widget – We have updated the look and feel, as well as the functionality of the RPX widget. In addition, the sign in experience now occurs in a friendly pop-up browser window for all 17 identity providers supported by RPX.
- Facebook Email Support – Facebook now allows users to approve sending their email address to your website during authentication. This feature can be easily enabled from within the dashboard of your RPX application.
- New Dashboard and Setup Guide - The RPX dashboard and setup guide have been redesigned to display more information in an improved format. A simpler wizard flow has been designed to make it easier to configure your widget and select identity providers.
- Downloadable Reports -For RPX Pro customers, we now offer the ability to download sign in analytics in a .csv file. If RPX is deployed on multiple domains, customers can also see which of those domains has had the most sign in activity. The reports are accessible from within the Analytics tab of the RPX dashboard.
