OpenID problems

Hi, I'd have added to this thred: http://developer.yahoo.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=5693 but that thread is closed.

I've been seeing problems with the Yahoo OpenID on two of my sites (using the JanRain PHP module) - both with http://yahoo.com/ and https://me.yahoo.com/

Sometimes it does return different URLs https://me.yahoo.com/a/[this part here] for the same Yahoo login.

This is pretty weird, is there any idea what the problem might be and when it will be fixed?

  • Hi Dominik,

    Yahoo! users can have multiple OpenID URLs through customization
    at http://openid.yahoo.com/.

    Can you please also send us the different OpenID URLs that belong
    to the same user so we can check?

    Yeah, okay, I asked the user and he even did use different Yahoo-logins, sorry.

    But it still seems to be broken - yahoo.com is still not working as OpenID and the https://me.yahoo.com/ is resulting in the JanRain PHP library giving me the "Authentication failed: Server denied check_authentication" error. Any idea what the problem might be there?

  • Hi,

    You can do OpenID discovery through yahoo.com or me.yahoo.com which
    returns location to the XRDS document that specifies Yahoo!'s
    OpenID auth endpoint:
    https://open.login.yahooapis.com/openid/op/auth

    Then all your actual OpenID requests should be sent to that endpoint.
    Neither yahoo.com nor me.yahoo.com handles OpenID authentication requests.

    Thanks,

  • It seems to me that only the URL

    https://me.yahoo.com/

    works with common OpenID modules.

    http://yahoo.com

    did not work
