"In the line of" might refer to some subject the speaker has in mind. Possibly. More context would almost surely be helpful.

What does it mean

In the line of promotion. :?:

"In the line of promotion" or "in line to be promoted" means that the person in question will be considered when there is an opening for a promotion.

In the line of duty means that someone did something, usually exceptional or different, as part of their work- police can get killed in the line of duty, when they are trying to help. ;-)
