LinkedIn OAuth redirect login returning "No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource" error responses apparently don’t include the Access-Control-Allow-Origin response header, and because they do not, your browser blocks your frontend JavaScript code from accessing the responses.

There are no changes you can make to your own frontend JavaScript code nor backend config settings that’ll allow your frontend JavaScript code to make requests the way you’re trying directly to and get responses back successfully. explains in more detail but the gist of it is that for CORS, the server the request is being sent to must be configured to send the Access-Control-Allow-Origin response header, nor your own backend server.

2019-05-30 update

The current state of things seems to be that when needing to do LinkedIn authorization, you’ll have to initiate the request from your backend code. There’s no way you can do it from your frontend code, because LinkedIn no longer provides any support for it at all.

LinkedIn did previously provide some support for handling it from frontend code. But the page that documented it,, now has this notice:

The JavaScript SDK is not currently supported

And has this:

Our JavaScript and Mobile Software Development Kits (SDKs) will stop working. Developers will need to migrate to using OAuth 2.0 directly from their apps.

So the remainder of this answer (from 2017-06-13, almost 2 years ago, at the time of this update) has now become obsolete. But it’s preserved below for the sake of keeping the history complete.

2017-06-13 details, now obsoleted

Anyway has official docs that explain how to request authorization for a user cross-origin, which appears to be just this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="//">
    api_key:   [API_KEY]
    onLoad:    [ONLOAD]
    authorize: [AUTHORIZE]
    lang:      [LANG_LOCALE]

IN.User.authorize(callbackFunction, callbackScope);

And has other docs that another auth flow:

<script type="in/Login"></script> <!-- Create the "Sign In with LinkedIn" button-->

<!-- Handle async authentication & retrieve basic member data -->
<script type="text/javascript">

    // Setup an event listener to make an API call once auth is complete
    function onLinkedInLoad() {
        IN.Event.on(IN, "auth", getProfileData);

    // Handle the successful return from the API call
    function onSuccess(data) {

    // Handle an error response from the API call
    function onError(error) {

    // Use the API call wrapper to request the member's basic profile data
    function getProfileData() {
