Announcement: Google as your Authentication on DevZone forum


Google has announced that the OpenID 2.0 API for Google accounts will be retired on April 20 2015

As a result, OpenID is being replaced by Google Connect API / Google + API for authentication.

What does this mean to me and are there any settings that will need to be changed to ensure I can login in the future?

  1. Go to the login page
  2. Select at the bottom "Click HERE if you are having trouble signing in"
  3. This will e-mail you a temporary Signing option.

Once you click the link you will be placed at the page to add a new provider. Choose this option and choose the new Google login button.
