Marketing Developer Platform Access Tiers

LinkedIn has two tiers of access to our Marketing Developer Platform: Development and Standard.

The tier assigned to your app defines how many Ad Accounts you can manage through the APIs. You can upgrade to the next access tier by meeting the requirements described for that next level. Please note that all API Calls at all access levels are made on production data. Also, use of LinkedIn's Campaign Management APIs is subject to our LinkedIn Marketing Developer Program Terms.

Access to the Marketing Developer Platform is reserved for applications building supported use cases. See the Marketing Developer Platform Overview for more information on supported use cases.
