Introduction

This guide demonstrates how to convert from Google's OpenID to OAuth 2.0.

On September 1, 2014, Google deprecated OpenID authentication and converted to OAuth 2.0 login. Due to this, Dozuki changed from Google's OpenID service to OAuth 2.0. If you have not converted to OpenID to OAuth 2.0, your OpenID users will no longer be able to log into your site.

Read about Google's change to OAuth 2.0 and review their Developer instructions. Note: If you follow Google's instructions, under "OAuth 2.0 Overview," only follow step 1. Create a client ID and client secret.

Please Note: When activated this feature opens up your site to anyone with a Google account. In order to avoid this, it is important to restrict the domain.

  1. This guide walks you through Google's instructions on getting credentials and then shows you how to enter them into your Dozuki site's /Manage interface.
    • Select your existing project or create a new one by clicking Create Project. If you already have a project, skip down to Step 4.

  2. If you are creating a new project, you should type a name for your project in the Project name field. In the Project ID field, optionally type in a project ID for your project or use the one that the console has created for you. This ID must be unique world-wide. After you have agreed to Google's Terms of Service, click on the Create button and wait for the project to be created. The project name appears at the top of the left sidebar, indicating that you are now editing the project.
