Username alignment for Extension website

Currently there exists various login locations with user names that have no connection to each other. For the benefit of using just one name for three sites some historical development of the sites have to be aligned. I can not influence the OOo main site, but I can make it comfortable on the extension and template website.

Timeline Extension website

  • 01.11.2010 Phase 1: Enforce OpenOffice.org email
  • 01.02.2011 Phase 2: Change authentication method and migrate to OpenOffice.org user names

User notification mails

Success migrated mail (Phase 2)

OpenOffice.org Extension repository website: Your Username

Your login to http://extensions.services.openoffice.org got successfull migrated.

To login from now on, please use your username: ".$username." and password as used on the OpenOffice.org main site: http://www.openoffice.org/servlets/TLogin

An email is send to ".name."@openoffice.org with this message for your records.

Ask for migration mail (Phase 1)

OpenOffice.org Template site: Your Username: ACTION REQUIRED Your login to http://templates.services.openoffice.org needs to get migrated.

Your current login is your email adress. To be able to offer a single sign on solution in the future we need your corresponding OpenOffice.org main site login name.

Please go to http://templates.services.openoffice.org/user/login and login with your current email adress: jlkdjl@kjhkh.dsd.j Then go to http://templates.services.openoffice.org/migrate_it and follow the instructions

You will get an email if everything went well.

Upcoming changes to the user login behavior on extension and template website

Short abstract:

For the benefit of a single sign on login on template and extension website (and later on the general openoffice.org site) some preparation will take place and actions need to be taken by some users.

This action is most important for users who contributed content, commented and voted on each site.

For this to work, every account needs to be mapped to the openoffice.org main site login name, since this is the only common name that can be exchanged across the sites and is unique.

Longer details for the curious:

Lets see which login methods are currently in use: There exists 3 login locations:

O) OpenOffice.org main site: http://www.openoffice.org/servlets/Login

   Either use a username or your email
   You have to register to get an account here
   You get an email address with your account like: username@openoffice.org

T) Template site: http://templates.services.openoffice.org/en/user/login

   Use your username from O)
   No need to register, just login.
   If logged in for the first time, a local account is generated
   automatically for some local bookkeeping related to this site.

E) Extension site: http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/en/user/login

   You have to register here to get an account.
   Login is possible with the local username.
   There is no connection to your account from O)
   This is for historical reasons, because in the beginning of the site
    the external authentication service from O) did not exist.

The long term goal is to just login on the OpenOffice.org main site and you will be automatic logged in on the other sites. For this to work a common unique username needs to get established. This will be the username from O). So what changes need to be made now on E) for this?

Extension site (E)

There will be notifications send out, that ask to provide your OpenOffice.org email address.
