1.3 What is an OpenID URL or identifier?

To log in to an OpenID-enabled website you need an OpenID identifier, also called an OpenID URL or simply an OpenID. Your OpenID is a URL (web address) which points to your organization's CrowdID server. Here are some examples of what your OpenID may look like:

http://my.server.name/myname
http://myname.mysite.com

To find your OpenID URL, you can:

  • Ask your system administrator, or
  • Click the 'My OpenID' link on the 'Home' tab of the CrowdID page.

Endpoint URLs

You can also use CrowdID's endpoint URL to log in to OpenID-enabled websites. The OpenID URLs for specific users may look like:

http://my.server.name/openidserver/users/myname
http://my.server.name/openidserver/users/anothername

Crowd also provides an endpoint URL that you can pass to login sites to have your identifier automatically selected:

http://my.server.name/openidserver/op
