We're integrating LinkedIn to CA Single Sign-On and we've seen that
the permissions has changed when configuring the LinkedIn :

Before 1st March 2019, permission were as per document, p.13 :

CA SiteMinder Social Sign-On Runbook for LinkedIn IDP 


but after 1st March 2019, the naming has changed and we'd like to know
which permissions should be set (Default Scope).


Release: MSPSSO99000-12.8-Single Sign-On-for Business Users-MSP


From our documentation you showed us, it needs 

Default Scope – r_basicprofile, r_emailaddress 

It looks like that in v2 version of LinkedIn API, you need to use 
"r_liteprofile (replaces r_basicprofile)" and r_emailaddress.

Does my developer application have access to the LinkedIn v2 API? 
All developer applications created on the LinkedIn Developer Portal after January 14, 2019 have access to the LinkedIn v2 API by default. Alternatively, if your developer application has made a successful LinkedIn v1 API request from September 1, 2018 to December 17, 2018, your developer application has immediate access to the v2 API. 

What permissions do I have access to? 
LinkedIn v1 APIs provided the following set of permissions: 

Moving forward, the available v2 APIs include: 

r_liteprofile (replaces r_basicprofile) 
w_member_social (replaces w_share) 
Looking to maintain access to rw_company_admin? Apply to the LinkedIn Marketing Developer Program to continue managing your Company Pages. 

About the r_fullprofile, note this : 

How to get LinkedIn r_fullprofile access? 

For getting permission to access r_fullprofile, you will have to apply 
to become a member of a relevant Partner Program. 

Apply for partner status with LinkedIn, explaining what your
integration is and how it works. If it meets the criteria of "we feel
that they’re providing value to members, developers and LinkedIn,"
then r_fullprofile endpoint will remain open for that app, and ONLY
that app
