There’s an interesting code sample that you can download from MSDN called SharePoint to LinkedIn Connector which is part of the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 SDK. Here’s a number of extra steps that I took to get it to work on my SharePoint 2010 dev box.
- I needed to add a reference to Microsoft.SharePoint.ApplicationPages.dll assembly – you can find it underneath C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\CONFIG\ADMINBIN.
- It has a hard coded reference to http://mysite in the feature activated event receiver – don’t forget to change that.
- During deployment I got an error stating - “No User Profile Application available to service the request. Contact your farm administrator.” – thankfully Steve to the rescue – “No User Profile Application Available Mystery” in SharePoint 2010
After that everything worked smoothly.
