Input

Import libraries

from naas_drivers import linkedin
import naas
import time

Setup LinkedIn

LI_AT = (
naas.secret.get("LI_AT") or "ENTER_YOUR_COOKIE_LI_AT_HERE"
) # EXAMPLE AQFAzQN_PLPR4wAAAXc-FCKmgiMit5FLdY1af3-2
JSESSIONID = (
naas.secret.get("JSESSIONID") or "ENTER_YOUR_COOKIE_JSESSIONID_HERE"
) # EXAMPLE ajax:8379907400220387585

Enter post URL

To get the URL for a post, click on the three dots option to the right corner of that post on LinkedIn and select "copy link to post" option.
Replace the string 'URL' below with the actual URL
POST_URL = "URL"

Model

Get comments of the post

Running the below cell fetches the information related to all the comments of the post and stores the information in a dataframe
df = linkedin.connect(LI_AT, JSESSIONID).post.get_comments(POST_URL)

Get profile URLs of all the commenters

profiles = df["PROFILE_URL"] # storing the profile URLs of all the commenters

Filter these profiles to include only people out of network

filtered_profiles = []
for i in profiles:
distance = linkedin.profile.get_network(profile_url=i)["DISTANCE"]
if distance[0] != "DISTANCE_1":
filtered_profiles.append(i)
time.sleep(3)

Output

Send invitations to all the commenters

for i in filtered_profiles: # looping through each commenter's profile URL
linkedin.connect(LI_AT, JSESSIONID).invitation.send(
recipient_url=i
) # send invitation
