OpenID Authentication Module
In addition to the OpenID providers that are supported with built-in authentication modules, Hub lets you enable authentication for any OpenID provider that uses OpenID 2.0.
Enable OpenID Authentication
To allow users to sign in to Hub with OpenID authentication, enable an OpenID authentication module.
Before you start, verify the following requirement:
To enable the module, follow these steps.
- In the Access Management section of the Administration menu, select .
- From the Add Module drop-down list, select OpenID Provider.
- In the Add Module dialog, enter values for the following settings:
Field Description Name Enter a name for the authentication module. Server URL Enter the server address of the OpenID provider. The provider defines the format that is required for the URL.
For details, refer to the documentation of the OpenID provider.
- Click the Create Module button.
- The OpenID authentication module is enabled.
- The Auth Modules page displays the settings for the OpenID authentication module. For additional information about the settings on this page, see OpenID Authentication Module.
- The icon stored in the Button Image setting is added to the login dialog window. Users can click this icon to authenticate with their OpenID credentials.
The settings are configured automatically when the module is added to Hub. You do not have to change these settings. To configure the options that define how Hub treats new user accounts with OpenID credentials, see Additional Settings.
Use the following settings to map user data stored with the OpenID provider to user accounts in Hub.
|Stores the location that contains the email address.|
|Email verification state||Determines which state should be set for an email address in Hub, when the authentication service does not return the verification status for an email address.|
|First Name||Stores the location that contains the first name of the user.|
|Last Name||Stores the location that contains the last name of the user.|
|Full Name||Stores the location that contains the full name of the user.|
|Avatar||Stores the location that contains the avatar of the user.|
When a user logs in to Hub with an OpenID account for the first time, Hub checks if an account with the same email address exists. If an account with the same email address exists, the OpenID credentials are added to the existing account.
Use the following settings to configure how Hub manages user accounts. These settings also let you reduce the loss of processing resources consumed by idle connections.
