How to fix me: Currently this single sign-in feature is disabled for the domain

Google Apps Market place for 3rd party applications has some great applications. Such as Xero and Insightly.

I started getting the following message when going from Google Apps to Insightly, a third party application.

Currently this single sign-in feature is disabled for the domain

The problem is not with the third party application. 

It requires a setting to be adjusted by the domain administrator for the Google Apps domain.

Here is how to fix the issue.

If you have domain admin access rights for Google Apps you need to enable Federated Login by carrying out the following steps:

  1. From Google Apps, click "Manage this domain".
  2. In the blue bar, click on "Advanced tools".
  3. Under "Authentication", click "Federated Login using OpenID"
  4. Make sure the checkbox labelled "Allow users to sign in to third party websites using OpenID" is checked.
  5. Click "Save changes". 

Please note: this does not give third party application any special access, or compromise the security of your account. 

Federated Login is enabled by default for regular Google Apps domains, but for some reason Google turns it off for Premier accounts.

Irvine Welsh - On Scotland and a the Scottish People

Mr Welsh was interviewed in today's Herald for his new book, Skagboys. Interesting interview specially at the end when he talks about feeling Scottish only when he realises  others see him as Scottish. Here is an extract from the interview:

"I think Scotland is on the brink of great and exciting things. It's actually beginning to realise itself now. The nationalist debate seems to have got a lot more mature. All this f"***** Bannockburn, Culloden nonsense has gone out the window." Instead, he says, there's a Scottish aspiration for social democracy that's not shared south of the Border. "The two countries have gone their separate ways, so [independence] seems inevitable. "I always think the Union is nature's way of stopping the Scots ruling the world. We'd be unstoppable if we were independent. We'd still emigrate in droves but we'd do it from a very entrenched position of confidence. All that ambition and arrogance would be unbridled right across the world. It would be a sight to behold."

I am very much about living in the now, and so should Scotland. Can not wait until 2014 and I get the chance to take part in history, and vote YES. Have been waiting for that day since 1979, when I became aware of politics, and the struggle to form a fully independent state for the people living in Scotland.
