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.

It seems like this was enabled last year. Here is the blog-post:


Note: The Federated Login Service is disabled by default for Google Apps Premier and Education Editions. The domain admin can enable it from the Control Panel at http://www.google.com/a/cpanel/<your-domain>/SetupIdp.

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.

    If you are the admin for the domain, you could use this article: jeremiahlee.com/blog/2009/09/28/…

  • 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.
