Integration Requirements for Events Lead Sync Program


Deprecation Notice
The Event Lead Sync APIs have been deprecated and will reach end of life at the end of June, 2024. New integrations should use the new Lead Sync APIs


Deprecation Notice
The Marketing version 202209 (Marketing September 2022) and below has been sunset and the unversioned APIs are going to be sunset soon. We recommend that you migrate to the versioned APIs as well as migrate to the new Content and Community Management APIs to avoid disruptions. See the Migration page for more details. If you haven’t yet migrated and have questions, submit a request on the LinkedIn Developer Support Portal.

LinkedIn has a technical sign off process for the Events LeadGen program. This ensures that our members get the best experience whether using LinkedIn's native UI or a partner product. The technical review and sign off also ensures that there are no gaps in integrations and that partner products keep up with the latest features and updates released by LinkedIn.

As an API partner, please go through the requirements listed below. These are the capabilities that an integrating partner is expected to build in their product. We request you to plan and incorporate these features early in your design. When you are nearing completion, you must initiate a Technical Sign Off request by contacting your LinkedIn POC on the Business Development team.

A Demo will be scheduled during which you will be asked to showcase all your product capabilities. During this evaluation, LinkedIn may suggest modifications which will need to be completed for the sign off. If all criteria are met (as per the envisioned scope), the technical sign-off is awarded.

This page documents the requirements for Events Lead Sync integrations only. If you are building an Ads Lead Sync integration, see Ads Lead Sync Requirements.


You can begin sharing your product with your Beta customers only after receiving the sign off.
