Ubuntu SSO is the universally recognized login provider for the Ubuntu community, as such Ask Ubuntu needs to use it over Launchpad. During one of the sessions at UDS-P it was confirmed that Ask Ubuntu should be changed to use Ubuntu SSO instead https://login.ubuntu.com/

    Can't we have both? (I mean for the time being, until Launchpad SSO is phased out.) Commented Jul 29, 2013 at 18:46
  • So far as I understand (and I need to disclaim that my understanding is cursory), the change need described here no longer applies. However, if I'm mistaken, and staff assistance is needed, I'd encourage creating a new Meta post here and routing it to us by flagging a moderator to add [status-review].

I went and took a whack at this and encountered two problems.

  • The presented credentials from SSO don't match those from Launchpad
  • There's only space for one custom login provider.

There are a few thousand people using launchpad at the moment, so I can't really justify pulling it in favor of Ubuntu SSO.

  • I appreciate you looking in to this, couldn't you add a smaller LP icon in the "Other options" panel? Thanks again! Commented Mar 2, 2012 at 21:23
  • @MarcoCeppi eh... moving the LP icon is going to confuse lots of people, especially since we don't show those smaller icons by default. Commented Mar 2, 2012 at 21:28

    Thanks, I'll check back if this is okay. I just know that the LaunchPad login is eventually going to be phased out in favor of Ubuntu SSO. To my knowledge they share the same login database, they just report different Claimed IDs Commented Mar 2, 2012 at 21:31

Is this problem now solved as the login procedure re-branded ?

I think you should change the Icon...

...and the redirection screen.

  • The problem isn't in the form but the base: "The presented credentials from SSO don't match those from Launchpad"
