Problem with merged account and OpenID

Asked by Julien Danjou on 2012-02-15

Due to bug 881019, when I log into Launchpad the wrong OpenID is being
passed to third party systems. The OpenID that is listed on my
Launchpad home page is:

However the one that is being passed when I authenticate is:

Would you please delete that OpenID so that only the one correctly
listed on my home page is passed?

When he logs into OpenStack's Gerrit with his launchpad ID, is still the ID that's being passed.

Webops: please delete all OpenIDIdentifiers for the Launchpad account. WxpdwPD will be the one that survives, as it's the true identity of the SSO account.

Julien will then need to log into Launchpad to teach it which one is right, and then wait for gerrit's cronjob to update their DB.

Julien, I have discussed this with a few people. Right now the zwY3xB7 does not appear in the DB but WxpdwPD does. Can you please log out completely and maybe even clear your browsers cache and then log back in? We'll take more drastic measures if this does not resolve the problem.

Julien Danjou (jdanjou) said : #6

I can try that but since the zwY3xB7 has been added to the third party system I use manually, I'm not able to see which OpenID is being passed anyway. If you know some way to debug this, I could try things.

We know this fixes the problem, so as long as it works for you it's fine.

Can you help with this problem?
