Defect #11778


openid : Fields not taken when logged in using Google account. Redmine 2.0.3

Added by Anup Nair over 11 years ago. Updated about 2 years ago.

Target version:

Due date:

Estimated time:
Wont fix
Affected version:


Redmine version 2.0.3.stable
Ruby version 1.8.7 (x86_64-linux)
Rails version 3.2.6
Environment production
Database adapter MySQL
Redmine plugins:
no plugin installed

I deployed the above redmine instance running over apache with passenger.

I enabled OpenID authentication in the settings.
Upon using Google App Account for login it redirects to Google for login and authorization. Works fine until here.

Thereafter, it shows a redmine registration page with following errors:

Login can't be blank
First name can't be blank
Last name can't be blank
Email can't be blank

I have to manually enter each field. Ideally this should have come automatically.

I have tried OpenID-fix but it doesn't work with redmine 2.0.3.

Entries in the application log is given below.

I have tried looking around for a fix for 2.0.3 but failed to find any trackers covering this issue.

If this has been reported & fixed before, then kindly provide me the link to the same.

I see the same problem. Are we doing anything wrong here ?

Actions #3

Updated by Andrew Dahl about 11 years ago

The problem is that Google, Yahoo, and, from what I understand, most big name OpenID providers are no longer supporting SReg (Simple Registration) requests and have switched to AX (Attribute Exchange). Redmine is currently setup to use SReg.

I've attached a patch that works on Google and Yahoo. I haven't tested it on other providers, but I'm fairly confident it will work as well, if not better, than the current implementation.

The patch is to be applied against 2.1.4.stable

I tested it using Ruby 1.9.3 and Rails 3.2.8

I think the openid-fix plugin also caters for this:

But of course this should be fixed / implemented in Redmine itself.

Finally, see also issue #8399.

This may be a dupe of #3780 - although it doesn't have a patch like here.

I've tried to apply the patch to Redmine 2.3.1 and found out it didn't work 'out of the box'. So here is an updated patch. :-)

It's been 10 months already...

The OpenID support has been dropped by #35755 for the upcoming Redmine 5.0.0.
