The original design doc at https://github.com/IQSS/dataverse/blob/4.0/doc/Architecture/auth.md was for "allow multiple logins to map to the same internal system user" but at the "merge party" in late September 2014 we decided to do away with this concept in fe8e41a. We'd like to at least explore the possibility of reintroducing the idea of permitting multiple login options to the same Dataverse account. The idea is that you could log in with HarvardKey (Shibboleth) or ORCID or a local account and still be "you" in Dataverse.

I think we want this, but when? Closing until we decide to prioritize it.

I'm re-opening this because as I mentioned at #6701 (comment) the dream is alive!

Yesterday, I saw this when testing OpenID Connect (OIDC), a next generation repository technology contributed by @poikilotherm in pull request #6433 for Dataverse 4.19: https://ngr.coar-repositories.org/technology/openid-connect/

That is to say, in theory, I should be able to log into https://data-beta.fz-juelich.de with any of HarvardKey, ORCID, and GitHub and still be "me" in Dataverse.

This is incredibly exciting! If it works, it has the potential to solve many headaches:

But does it work? Someone should test it. 😄

I tested this with our installation of Unity IDM, maintained by @apw1388

First let's associate my ORCID account with my company account in the IDM:

add-account-1
add-account-2
add-account-3
add-account-4
add-account-5
add-account-6
add-account-7

Then login to Jülich DATA BETA with ORCID and still have the same user account:

multiway-login-1
multiway-login-2
multiway-login-3
multiway-login-4
multiway-login-5

I'm so happy I can keep promises I made in http://guides.dataverse.org/en/4.19/installation/oidc.html
