Users manual¶

There are no user–configurable options for this extension. Once installed OpenID authentication becomes available to users automatically.

When using OpenID for authentication, user needs only to write his OpenID in the "User name" field. The password box is ignored when using OpenID. If login form requires a password, user can type any random sequence of characters there. These characters will not affect OpenID authentication.

Normal authentication works in parallel with OpenID authentication: user can use OpenID or their normal TYPO3 login. Administrators can force users to use OpenID only by generating random long passwords for users.
