LinkedIn Ads connection requirements

An error will show in HubSpot next to any LinkedIn Ads accounts on hold. Learn more about how to remove the hold status in LinkedIn's documentation.
  • If you've installed an ad blocker extension for your browser, ensure it is turned off when connecting your LinkedIn Ads account and using the HubSpot Ads tool.
  • The HubSpot user who connects a LinkedIn Ads account must have Publish access to the ads tool in HubSpot.

Necessary disclosure: your use of the LinkedIn Ads integration is subject to LinkedIn's terms and conditions. HubSpot will be able to view and manage your account, as well as store your LinkedIn Ads account number. When you authorize the integration, HubSpot receives a user token with permissions on the connected ad accounts and pages. HubSpot can view but does not store all the ad accounts and pages you have permissions for. LinkedIn will share settings details (e.g., name, budget, bid strategy, creative) and performance metrics (impressions, clicks, etc.) for all ad campaign groups, campaigns, and ads in the ad accounts you connected.
