    Does Alfresco 4 and/or Share support OpenID? Can we authenticate to AF from a GoogleApps domain where GA is the OpenID identity provider, for example.

    • Hi Michael. I checked with our Support team and this is what they said:

      Not directly. We believe it may be possible with an external authentication system such as CAS/Siteminder, and if so, those can use Alfresco’s “external” SSO authentication mode. is one example.

      • Interesting – I have OpenID SSO authentication as a requirement for a project I am bidding for. Would be great to have it built in.

        Thanks for following up Michael Penney’s enquiry.
