Login pages for Liberty must have a certain configuration in order to support OpenID Authentication.
About this task
If you have configured the providerIdentifier attribute of the
<openId> element in your server.xml file, you can skip
Unlike standard form login pages that require a user name and password, form login for OpenID only requires submitting an OpenID Identifier.You must therefore configure form login pages to accept this OpenID Identifier.
Configure the login form to specify
j_security_checkas the value for the action.
Add an input field to the login form and set the name attribute to
openid_identifier for users to input an OpenID Identifier. The resulting form
is similar to the following HTML example:
<FORM action="j_security_check" method="POST"> OpenID: <INPUT type="text" name="openid_identifier"><br> <INPUT type="submit" name="action" value="Login"> </FORM>
No user name or password inputs are required if authentication is only performed using OpenID.
