Data Validation API

The Data Validation API is an asynchronous export API that enables the No Longer with Company validation export. The API performs validation of data ingested via CRM Sync and when called, returns an export for a CRM instance that identifies contact and lead records whose current company on LinkedIn does not match the company in the CRM. This data can be used to enable data integrity workflows within the CRM application to keep CRM contact records up-to-date.

Profile Associations API

The Profile Associations API offers third-party applications the ability to leverage existing LinkedIn profile matches for customers using CRM Sync in their Sales Navigator implementation. Using external identifiers, you can request and use public profile photos and Sales Navigator profile links to enrich the identities of contacts and leads in the external application.
