Scraped Data

Scraped company results are stored in a dataset, from which they can be exported to formats such as JSON, XML, CSV or Excel.

The structure of a scraped company looks like this:

Building Requests

The scraper supports many options to match your needs. Most of them are optional though, so the scraper remains easy to use.

Options can be entered either manually in the user interface in Apify Console, or programmatically in a JSON object using the Apify API.

For a technical list of input fields and types, please see the Input section.

Options Detail

Auth Token

The actor performs authenticated searches on LinkedIn.
To retrieve an authentication token, connect to linkedin.com from a browser and copy the li_at session cookie value.
A valid token expires after 1 year or after a logout from LinkedIn.
Find how to retrieve a cookie from Google Chrome here.

Preferred Language

The language field should be defined when localized values are used in filters (typically for location and industry filters).
Company data will be localized when possible or fallback to English.

Keywords

The keywords field is equivalent to the search bar input on LinkedIn. It is possible to use boolean expressions in this field.

Location Filter

The location field contains an array of locations used to filter companies. Location inputs use LinkedIn autocompletion.

Industry Filter

The industry field contains an array of industries used to filter companies. Industry inputs use LinkedIn autocompletion.

Size Filter

The size field accepts an array of company sizes to filter search results. The following values are valid:

  • "1-10"
  • "11-50"
  • "51-200"
  • "201-500"
  • "501-1000"
  • "1001-5000"
  • "5001-10000"
  • "10000+".

Has Jobs Filter

The hasJobs field is a boolean value to search only for companies that have active job offers on LinkedIn.

Network Depth Filter

The networkDepth field can be used to search only for companies based on 1st-degree connections working there.
The only supported value is 1, as LinkedIn returns no results for 2nd-degree and 3rd-degree connections.

Limit

The limit field is the maximum number of companies to be scraped.
It ranges from 0 to 1000. Default value is 50.

Offset

The offset field enables skipping the first [offset] search results before scraping. It can be useful to slice results in multiple datasets.
It ranges from 0 to 999. Default value is 0.

Location Id Filter

The locationId field accepts an array of location ids.
It is a technical filter provided for compatibility purpose.
Most users should use the Location Filter instead.

Industry Id Filter

The industryId field accepts an array of industry ids.
It is a technical filter provided for compatibility purpose.
Most users should use the Industry Filter instead.

Proxy Configuration

The proxyConfiguration field is used to configure Apify proxies.

Dataset Name

The datasetName field is the name or id of the dataset used for storing results. If left empty, the default dataset of the actor is used.

Limitations

A few limitations apply to the actor.

LinkedIn

The actor requires an authentication to LinkedIn.
As a result, scraping abusively may get a LinkedIn account limited or banned.

Liability

The actor is provided “as is”, without warranty of any kind, express or implied, including but not limited to the warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and noninfringement. In no event shall the authors or copyright holders be liable for any claim, damages or other liability, whether in an action of contract, tort or otherwise, arising from, out of or in connection with the actor or the use or other dealings in the actor.
