Using

The Account_System can act as an OpenID provider. This functionality is currently in beta.

When trying to log on to an OpenID enabled site, give
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/openid/id/username
as URL. Example, if your FAS login is JohnDoe, you would enter https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/openid/id/JohnDoe. If you are not logged in to FAS at this stage, you will be first taken to your FAS login page. On the first login from the external site, you will be taken to admin.fedoraproject.org and asked to approve the OpenID request.

Feedback

OpenID still does not work for all sites. We are looking for feedback and developers to improve the code. Please leave comments on the Discussion tab. We've also got a list of tested sites you might like to check out in there!

contributing

git

git clone ssh://git.fedorahosted.org/git/fas.git

It's in fas/openid_samadhi.py

upstream

It's taken and updated from an upstream project, samadhi

ssh://git.fedorahosted.org/git/samadhi.git

It needed to be modified to work with FAS though.

samadhi was written by User:jcollie A good place to start is trying to understand the OpenID spec

history

OpenID was first [discussed] at the 2006 FedoraSummit.

thanks
