Google+ APIs and OAuth requests are being shutdown on March 7, 2019

Post by neurotic »

Hi FormaLMS Community!

I'm currently using the FormaLMS GoogleAuth plugin to authenticate user logins.
However, Google has advised that it will discontinue Google+ APIs and OAuth requests.
Please see attached screenshot.

My questions are:
1. Will the GoogleAuth plugin of FormaLMS be affected by this?
2. If FormaLMS will be affected, what do we need to do to fix this?

Thank you!

V1 of google api oauth was to be abandoned time ago as all v1 apis, as they are obsolete.
V2 oauth apis are available and work perfectly.

Hi alfa24,

Thank you for your reply.
I am using FormaLMS v2.0
May you please clarify?
Do you mean that FormaLMS v2.0 is using v2 of Google API OAuth?
...and it won't be affected by the Google+ OAuth shutdown on March 7, 2019?

No. I'm saying that oauth v1 was deprecated before forma released its plugin and it SHOULD upgrade to v2.
If you need a v2 plugin contact me with a pm.

I got a follow-up email from Google (see attached).
How do I check if the FormaLMS GoogleAuth plugin uses the "plus.me" scope?
