Description

At source:tags/4.0.4/Gemfile#L28, openid gems are stated as optional.

# Optional gem for OpenID authentication
group :openid do
  gem "ruby-openid", "~> 2.3.0", :require => "openid" 
  gem "rack-openid" 
end

However, but Redmine fails to start with the error "LoadError: cannot load such file -- openid" if you skipped installing openid gems.

Steps to reproduce:

$ svn co https://svn.redmine.org/redmine/trunk redmine
$ cd redmine
$ vim config/database.yml  # configure config/database.yml
$ bundle install --without openid
$ bin/rake db:migrate
rake aborted!

This has been the case for many years in fact.

I once started work on this, fixed it but never got to posting the polished patch.
I am willing to see if I can lookup this branch if there really is interest in fixing this issue given that this hasn't been reported for so long.

#3 Updated by Go MAEDA about 2 years ago

To be honest, I think it is better to drop OpenID support than fixing this issue. In my observation, OpenID is getting obsolete. Many services have stopped being an OpenID provider.

I agree with you.

#5 Updated by Mischa The Evil about 2 years ago

I don't think that this low priority issue alone justifies dropping OpenID support in Redmine altogether. I think that is something that should be discussed in a separate, dedicated issue.
