Go to the Destinations overview page and click the Add destination button. Select LinkedIn Ads and click Continue. You can then authenticate Hightouch to LinkedIn Ads using OAuth.
For the Authentication method, select Log in to LinkedIn Ads and log into your LinkedIn Ads account.
Once successful, you will be redirected back to Hightouch to enter a descriptive name for your destination and complete setup.
Once you've set up your LinkedIn Ads destination and have a model to pull data from, you can set up your sync configuration to begin syncing data. Go to the Syncs overview page and click the Add sync button to begin. Then, select the relevant model and the LinkedIn Ads destination you want to sync to.
To get started, select an ad account to sync your data to, then select which audience object you want to sync data to: Company or User.
Hightouch supports automatically creating a new audience for your sync. You can specify a custom name for this audience, or Hightouch will use the name of the model.
After the initial run of the sync, you can't update the ad account, audience object, or name of the audience. To make these changes, create a new sync.
This integration supports Upsert mode. New users will be inserted into the LinkedIn audience. Users that are removed from the model will be removed from the audience.
LinkedIn allows mapping to various user and company identifiers, such as email, IDFA, company domain, etc. LinkedIn requires the email for users to be hashed using SHA256 or SHA512, which we take care of automatically on the backend.
Sync data from any source to LinkedIn as conversion events.
You can match rows from your model to conversions in LinkedIn on the following user fields:
- Email (SHA256)
- LinkedIn tracking UUID
- Acxiom ID
- Oracle moat ID
Hightouch lets you sync conversion event properties via field mapping.
You can enable PII hashing if you want Hightouch to automatically detect, normalize, and hash fields that require it. For example, if you map to a
Email (SHA256) field and the model column with the email data is unhashed, Hightouch hashes the value for you.
By default, Hightouch automatically detects if the following fields require hashing:
- Email (SHA256)
- Email (SHA512)

You can resolve this error by either:

nullvalues from your model's query results
- Replacing any
nullvalues in your model's query results with another value
- Using the advanced mapper to ignore any
