External issue:


Hi there, I was struggling with OpenId account association until I realize that is just not implemented at all. So after this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8806865/redmine-openid-usage where @mppfiles bring openId fix to my knowledge I went a little deeper I edit the code so now it checks if the email returned by openID is an existing user email and if so associates the identity_url permanently.

Patch attached.

Hello Andriy! Thanks a lot for your redmine activity!

I have a question about this issue.

Now I use 0.1.0 version of this plugin, and - as I can see - you have slightly modified the code, so above patch is not applicable directly.

I tried to modify current code by myself, but have no success - I’m not a ruby developer at all

You can see my version of the code in attachement.

Here is production.log for a login attempt:

@ArgumentError (http://axschema.org/contact/email is not a defined simple registration field):
  lib/plugins/open_id_authentication/lib/open_id_authentication.rb:145:in `complete_open_id_authentication'
  lib/plugins/open_id_authentication/lib/open_id_authentication.rb:121:in `authenticate_with_open_id'
  app/controllers/account_controller.rb:159:in `authenticate_user'
  app/controllers/account_controller.rb:32:in `login'@

So how can I implement this feature and allow existing users login with openid, recognizing them by their email?
