We use Gmail on Google Apps for email for our small company using our on domain-name. Now I would like to use the email-addresses with OpenID.

Is there any way I can use Gmail on Google Apps as OpenID provider?

I can not login on gmail.com with these email-addresses, and the URL to the Google Apps Gmail wasn't valid as a OpenID provider here on StackExchange.

I would like to use the Google Apps as a provider, so the users just have to manage one password for email, and login to other sites.

The OpenID URL for Google Apps is something like:

Thanks, it looks interesting, but it doesn't seem to work here: No OpenID endpoint found. and I don't know any other place I could test on. – Jonas Sep 9 '10 at 10:25
If you are the admin for the domain, you could use this article: jeremiahlee.com/blog/2009/09/28/… – Espo Sep 9 '10 at 11:12
Yes, I'm the admin, and we use the Standard edition, so i should be activated by default, but it doesn't seem to work. I will try the steps in the article, thanks. – Jonas Sep 9 '10 at 11:29
