Linkedin learning

LinkedIn Learning has been big disappointment so far. We switch to their
service few months ago but they still cannot implement any form of
authorization at their end. LinkedIn insisted everything works fine but ...
if you use AD/Azure. With Lynda we were using eduPersonEntitlement for
authorization but LinkedIn could not implement it initially. Then they
implemented it but as a single value attribute. Though it's easy to filter
the values and send a single one, their logic didn't work properly either
and we are waiting for them to fix it. Hopefully to will happen soon.
Our form of "authorization" for last few months has been obscurity, no
matter how stupid it is.
