A few years ago Microsoft said that Windows Live ID would be an OpenID provider. Have they actually gotten around to implementing it, and if so, where is the service URL?

    @Mike Scott How can it be a duplicate of a question from another site targeting different type of users? – AndrejaKo Sep 6 '11 at 10:06
  • @mike-scott How am I supposed to find it there if I was just looking here? I'm not looking to write anything with their API, I was just looking to use it, which is why I came to Super User. – CyberSkull Sep 6 '11 at 23:00
  • @CyberSkull It's the seventh result on Google for '"windows live" openid'. It's hardly unreasonable to expect people to look through the first page of search results on Google before asking a question here. – Mike Scott Sep 7 '11 at 6:34

There is isn't OpenID support for Windows Live.



Ack, I meant to write it isn't implemented. Funny how one omission changes everything.

  • Can you please provide a quote form that page that actually shows that microsoft provided an OpenID provider for Live platform? – AndrejaKo Sep 6 '11 at 8:54
  • Yeah, I was wondering why all the downvotes. Then I read what I typed. . . – surfasb Sep 6 '11 at 16:30
  • All the Wikipedia article really says is they announced it, and nothing else. – CyberSkull Sep 6 '11 at 23:06
  • Yeah, I meant to type that it isn't supported. – surfasb Sep 7 '11 at 3:50
