     We have a registration module where the user needs to register on our site to access certain areas of the website.

    The process can be the user registers on our site and we allow him the access and another can be the user is already a LinkedIn user and we need to authenticate the user and allow him access. We are able to authenticate the user from our site, but how do we perform the session persistence if the user logs in from LinkedIn. And what is the better way to handle external authentication.

    Please let me know on this ASAP.

Here is our official documentation how to set it up:
