Canonical SSO provider

Login with OpenID at another site

Asked by Christoffer Holmstedt on 2011-10-25

Hi
I'm trying to login with my launchpad account through OpenID at http://www.jonobacon.org/2011/10/17/mini-leadership-summit-at-the-ubuntu-developer-summit/ to be able to post a comment. I can clearly see that it should work(it did one hour ago for another launchpad user) but the information I found at https://help.launchpad.net/YourAccount/OpenID seems to be out of date. When I try to use the https://launchpad.net/~christoffer-holmstedt link I get "Unfortunately, we could not initiate OpenID process. Please, close this window and try again." error from Disqus.

If anyone can guide me to the correct way of using OpenID with Launchpad as provider I would be really grateful.

Taking this to Stuart once again. Sorry, Stuart!

Thank you for triaging to "Canonical SSO Provider" as topic. That made it easy to browse the open bugs. I found the "correct" adress in the comments in this bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/canonical-identity-provider/+bug/637968 (comment #2).

The correct adress to use is https://login.launchpad.net/ which works fine for me.

The intresting part is that over at https://login.launchpad.net/ it listed disqus.com in the top, and stated that I was authenticated for that site the 25th of october. Some mismatch must have happen if launchpad approves and disqus.com denies my openid authentication through https://launchpad.net/~christoffer-holmstedt

@christoffer-holmstedt: Thanks for confirming the main login.lp openid works for you. Your LP username *should* also work so I'm going to create a bug to track that issue.

http://launchpad.net/~yourusername (ie witout https) works too and gets redirected to the https version automatically.
