DESCRIPTION

Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::Credential::OpenID is an OpenID credential for Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication framework.

METHODS

authenticate_openid
  $c->authenticate_openid;

Call this method in the action you'd like to authenticate the user via OpenID. Returns 0 if auth is not successful, and 1 if user is authenticated.

User class specified with user_class config, which defaults to Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::User::Hash, will be instantiated with the following parameters.

By default, authenticate_openid method looks for claimed URI parameter from the form field named openid_url, openid_identifier or claimed_uri. If you want to use another form field name, call it like:

  $c->authenticate_openid( $c->req->param('myopenid_param') );
url
display
rss
atom
foaf
declared_rss
declared_atom
declared_foaf
foafmaker

See Net::OpenID::VerifiedIdentity for details.

DIFFERENCE WITH Authentication::OpenID

There's already Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::OpenID (Auth::OpenID) and this plugin tries to deprecate it.

  • Don't use this plugin with Auth::OpenID since method names will conflict and your app won't work.

  • Auth::OpenID uses your root path (/) as an authentication callback but this plugin uses the current path, which means you can use this plugin with other Credential plugins, like Flickr or TypeKey.

  • This plugin is NOT a drop-in replacement for Auth::OpenID, but your app needs only slight modifications to work with this one.

  • This plugin is based on Catalyst authentication framework, which means you can specify user_class or auth_store in your app config and this modules does the right thing, like other Credential modules. This crates new User object if authentication is successful, and works with Session too.
