"Over a million new OpenID Identity Providers! We are happy
to announce that the Google OpenID Federated Login has been extended to Google Apps accounts"

"The OpenID Federated Login Service is available for all Google Apps
editions. However, it is disabled by default for the Premier and Education
and editions, and it requires the Domain Admin to manually enable it from the Control Panel."

I'm a developer, and my company like to use the OpenID authentication for the user login. (We're following the adveices of, and our system worked correctly for last friday)
We recognize a problem, that Google changed the ClaimedID-s (or the autenticathion's return urls). It means: All users indentifier changed. It is a very serious problem, becouse we (following the advice) used the return url (the user indentifier) as unique ID in our database. So the login is not working now correctly.
Why happend this modification, and we have to count other modifications?
Currently, our system is not able to work correctly.

Best Regards,

Andrew Otto
