Attribution to signups with LinkedIn OAuth 2.0 authentication
We've recently introduced a LinkedIn signup feature on our website. Instead of users having to fill in their details in a form, they can validate using LinkedIn's OAuth 2.0 Authentication.
However, we are not able to attribute where the sign-ups have come from, given that users are redirected to LinkedIn to authenticate and then return to the website. As a result, google analytics starts a new session when users come back.
Are there any tricks to work around this?
Thanks in advance for your help.

if you are set up with GTM you can use something like this http://www.simoahava.com/gtm-tips/implement-referral-exclusions-via-gtm/ a proper way to do it would to just override the referrals when auth > page. Another way, if applicable, is to use utm_nooverride=1.
