Remember / OpenID integration

Project description


This package will provide rudimentary OpenID support for Plone sites that are using Remember-based member objects. It supports creation of a member object immediately following an initial successful OpenID authentication, or attaching OpenID accounts to existing member objects.


Install the RemOpenId egg into your python environment using buildout, pip, or the installer of your choice. Then add ‘topp.remopenid’ to your ZCML packages (usually by setting the ‘zcml’ value in the ‘instance’ section of your buildout) and restart Zope. Install the “TOPP RemOpenId” product into your Plone site, and voila.

NOTE: For OpenID support to work, you must allow users to register to your site. To do this visit the Security configlet in the Site Setup and ensure that ‘Enable self-registration’ is checked.

WARNING: When you install this product into a Plone site, it will reconfigure your site’s PAS folder (i.e. acl_users). While this isn’t usually a problem in standard Remember sites, if you’ve made your own customizations to the PAS configuration, installing RemOpenId may cause you to lose them. Use at your own risk, and always back up important data before trying new software.


Once RemOpenId has been installed, OpenID login forms will start to show up on your site, just like if you were to install OpenID support into a non-Remember Plone site. When users new to your site successfully authenticate with OpenID URLs, they will be presented with a completion form where they can enter a username and email address to finalize their site registration.

Additionally, an OpenID Accounts portlet will show up on the member preferences edit page for every site member. This portlet will list any associated OpenID URLs, and will provide a simple form for registering new ones.

There is not at this time any way to delete OpenID account associations, although if the member object is deleted the OpenID association will be reset and future uses of an associated OpenID URL will be treated as unknown users.
