Integration Overview

Check out our overview of Adobe Captivate Prime's integration benefits and capabilities.

Single Sign-On

During the initial configuration, you can configure LinkedIn Learning and Adobe to establish a secure SAML single sign-on (SSO) connection to ensure seamless access to content. SSO authentication reduces friction for users and administrators by eliminating the need for manual user registration. SSO also ensures learners spend more of their time watching content and less of their time trying to remember usernames and passwords.

Automated Content Catalog Sync

The LinkedIn Learning library contains thousands of courses. LinkedIn Learning adds courses at a rate of 20-30 per week at no extra cost. The Adobe Captivate Prime administrator manually uploads new content at regular intervals.

The Adobe Captivate Prime deep integration with LinkedIn Learning uses LinkedIn Learning APIs to refresh the content library daily. This feature ensures LinkedIn Learning makes new content available within 24 hours of release. LinkedIn Learning aggregates and indexes all content titles and descriptions to accommodate keyword searches and support efficient discoverability. Adobe Captivate Prime supports automatic syncing of English only content libraries.


Enabling SAML SSO

We recommend SAML SSO for all enterprise learning platform integrations. You can configure SSO authentication in your LinkedIn Learning Admin settings. Most organizations have a centrally-managed identity management solution like Azure AD, Okta, or ADFS which can be configured to authenticate users into enterprise applications like LinkedIn Learning.

To configure SAML SSO with your identity management solution, share our LinkedIn Learning SSO Implementation Guide with your organization's IT team.


LinkedIn Learning captures all content viewed on its platform in robust usage reports accessible from the LinkedIn Learning administrative interface. In addition to generating reports, LinkedIn Learning uses AICC to communicate a learner's progress back to Adobe Captivate Prime when the learner launches content from the LMS.


AICC Configuration Steps
