OpenID Connect with OpenAM

Lately we have been trying to use OpenID Connect with OpenAM. By following the official documentation, you can easily configure a basic scenario where OpenAM is just an OAuth/OpenID Connect provider.  However, we have found that some goals are not easily achievable with the current available versions of  OpenAM.


OpenIDM and Google Apps new API

OpenIDM and Google Apps new API : a few months ago, Google announced that as of April 20, 2015 the Provisioning API, among others, will be discontinued and replaced by the Admin SDK API.
Since the deprecation period for these APIs is coming to an end, the Google connector provided with OpenIDM 2.x will not work anymore as of April 20, 2015 and unfortunately the one provided with OpenIDM 3.x and based on the new APIs is only available as part of the commercial product. Therefore,  if you are using the community version of OpenIDM, soon you will no longer be able to manage users on Google Apps.
