I use Google Apps for my organization's user accounts and email. It is very convenient to have our users use Google's OpenIDs to log into various websites, including StackExchange, without them having to create and maintain YET ANOTHER password.
OwnCloud seems like a neat project for filesharing, and I have an instance installed. Supposedly OwnCloud supports OpenID authentication instead of custom usernames and passwords but I cannot find any documentation on how to configure that. I have enabled "OpenID user backend" and "External User Support" apps in my owncloud instance, but I can't figure out how to use them - especially for Google Apps OpenID (and without enabling Google+ for the OpenID)
It's a little confusing to know whether the OpenID support is for using the OwnCloud instance as the OpenID authority or, as I need it, accepting of OpenIDs for logging in.
Further, even if I knew how to log in to the web application, I also want to use the OwnCloud thick-client (windows) and continue to use the OpenIDs for logging in with that program. I don't see that as an option.
I would set a bounty on this except I don't have the points. Anybody want to open a bounty for it?
