Not able to get the data from Linkedin using DataScraping


#1

I have a task to retrieve the data from the linked profile. I am not able to retrieve the education info as the id is different for every profile. The selector is "<webctrl id="ember28354" tag="UL">". I have used the wildcard "<webctrl id="ember*" tag="UL">". If the use the wildcard, the result is empty. Please help to solve this issue. Use the following url to for test.

  1. https://www.linkedin.com/in/james-schenck-b41b9a1/

I have a problem with attaching files on board.
Try this:
Attach browser: Browser Type IE, delete selector
Extract structure data: selector - , Extract metadata:
'extract>
'column name=‘Column1’ attr=‘text’ exact=‘1’>
'webctrl tag=‘li’ class=‘school’ />
'webctrl tag=‘header’ idx=‘1’ />
'webctrl tag=‘h4’ class=‘item-title’ idx=‘1’ />
'webctrl tag=‘a’ idx=‘1’ />
'/column>
'/extract>

Please replace ’ with <

Thanks for your reply. The education section is varying between pages. I am not sure how to give the selector and metadata. If you share your email id, I will send the file to you.
