Not getting real time data from linkedin , Please help..

HEy,

Let me explain you again everything.

I am designing an application where I am analyzing my linkedin contacts.

I Installed QVSource , authenticate my Linkedin Account. Fetch data , Generate scripts and copy those scripts in Qlikview.

Now , I get Linkedin data in qlikview application for analysis.

Now I logged in my linkedin account and added a person say(Brain) to my linkedin network.

Now I want Brain to be shown in my Qlikview application where I fetched data above.

For this I configure QVSource in Windows Task Scheduler at every 1 minute , so that after every 1 minute QVSource runs and fetch data again from linkedin so that I only have to click reload in qlikview to get Brain(My recently added contact) in qlikview.

But the same is not happening.

I have to re-authenticate everytime in QVSource to get updated data(even though I schedule QVSource at every 1 minute.)

So ,According to me , after every 1 minute QVSource should re-authenticate authomatically since I configure it to run again after every 1 minute(and I need not to authenticate or login again and again.)

Where am I wrong , please help me.

Thanx.

Hi

Unfortunately you'll find this is a limitation of the LinkedIn API rather than QVSource. The API doesn't get it's data from your live LinkedIn profile but from a separate "reporting server" which is only updated once every 24 hours.

This is the same with many other web APIs. Google Analytics is exactly the same and and so you can't see your traffic so far today, only from yesterday and before.

Matt

Yes unfortunately that is the case with LinkedIn. If you try the next day then the data will be available through the API via QVSource.

I think the twitter API is much better and that searches via it are relatively real time. Would need to test it though to be sure.
