Description Anon Sricharoenchai 2007-04-17 10:56:11 UTC
According to, http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3060
and, http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=57

This extension would be great and help the bug #57 to be partially fixed.

OpenID is an distributed open Single-Sign-On System targeted on forums, wikis,
weblogs etc.

The extension is available at:
http://svn.wikimedia.org/svnroot/mediawiki/trunk/extensions/OpenID/

The documentation is at:
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:OpenID
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-04-17 16:28:53 UTC
My understanding is that this will be on the drawing board once the framework
for bug 57 is in place, and it will not be considered before then.  Changing
dependency accordingly.
Comment 2 Théo 2007-05-01 12:54:21 UTC
Well, bug 57 seems unsolvable.
My idea of "How OpenID on Wikipedia should work" :
 * create a sub-domain for hosting OpenID accounts ( eg. id.wikimedia.org)
 * create your openID on id.WM.org
 * link your OpenID and your "local account" (double confirmation, with OpenID
and local accounts)
 * use your OpenID (where you have not a "local account") and your local account
(where you have one)

In fact, your unique OpenID and yours local accounts are attached.

Well, bug 57 has been solved now.
Comment 4 Mike.lifeguard 2009-03-19 17:16:09 UTC
Do we know if the code is ready for use?
Comment 5 SJ 2009-05-04 20:24:38 UTC
Good question.  I'd like to be able to use my WM identity elsewhere.
Comment 6 Alexandre Emsenhuber [IAlex] 2009-06-19 11:27:26 UTC
Added bug 17637 as dependency for this bug since for now OpenID extension only supports "FileStore" storage, which would need access through NFS.
Comment 7 Betacommand 2009-08-07 19:16:26 UTC
remove shell keyword not ready for shell yet
Comment 8 ipatrol 2010-05-31 16:40:19 UTC
I would say this is good, but we shouldn't give full user privileges because we can't apply account creation blocks as effectively and, as our Wikipedia article says, there is a higher phishing risk. I would suggest limiting the privileges to user, non-autoconfirmed, and give them a username as idusername@providername. Full privileges simply require creating a local username and password.

Mass maintainer change.
Comment 12 T. Gries 2011-05-28 20:42:00 UTC
For those who want to test, the present version in trunk (OpenID 0.929-beta) works ***very*** well. If someone gives me the possibility to install it on a WMF wiki, please let me know.
Comment 13 T. Gries 2012-08-15 19:33:31 UTC
removed blocker. It does not "block" the Provider property.
Comment 14 T. Gries 2012-08-15 19:34:22 UTC

Are these limitations still applicable? If so why? (I cannot seem to find the article mentioned explaining why.)
Comment 16 Ryan Kaldari 2013-01-29 21:51:38 UTC
There's currently a proposal on the English Wikipedia village pump to turn on OpenID. Is there any reason (technical or practical) that this wouldn't be feasible?

I am currently working on an improved version, so an implementation should wait until the new version is code reviewed and committed (perhaps in 2 weeks).
Comment 18 Tyler Romeo 2013-01-29 22:32:09 UTC
Also, there are a number of open bugs that make E:OpenID in its current form impossible to deploy functionally to WMF.
Comment 19 Ryan Lane 2013-01-30 06:35:56 UTC
Does the village pump specify as a consumer or a provider? We'll need a designer to fix the UX issues to use it as a consumer. There's a number of bugs in the provider code, though Thomas is working on them.
Comment 21 T. Gries 2013-02-27 23:17:23 UTC
assigned to the master
Comment 22 James Forrester 2013-05-24 07:57:27 UTC
Making this clearer per comments on bug 13631.
