Background

Google is replacing their existing “Sign in with Google” capability with “Sign in with Google+”. Google requires vendors, such as Oracle, to replace the existing “Sign in with Google” authentication method with the newer “Sign in with Google+” authentication method to avoid user disruption.

 

As of April 20, 2015, Google will no longer support its “Sign in with Google” authentication method.



Customer Impact

All customers that currently allow candidates to log into career sites using their Google credentials are impacted by Google’s deprecation of the “Sign in with Google” capability.

 

Customers currently allowing candidates to sign in using Google credentials

Candidates using their Google credentials to log into customer career sites will lose the ability to access their accounts unless customers that are currently leveraging the “Sign in with Google” capability, upgrade to Oracle Taleo Enterprise Edition (TEE) 14A Maintenance Pack (MP) 9 or TEE 14B (or higher) and undergo the appropriate steps to enable and configure “Sign in with Google+” prior to Google’s deprecation of the “Sign in with Google” feature on April 20th, 2015.

 

Customers wishing to allow candidates to sign in using Google credentials in the future

Customers that have never enabled candidates to sign in to career sites using their Google credentials, but would like to do so, must upgrade to TEE 14A MP9 or TEE 14B (or higher) and undergo the appropriate steps to enable and configure “Sign in with Google+”.

 

Action Required: It is highly recommended that customers that currently allow candidates to log into career sites using Google credentials upgrade to TEE 14A MP9 or TEE 14B (or higher) and enable the “Sign in with Google+” capability.

 


Critical Dates

14A Maintenance Pack 9 – Target General Availability: March 16th, 2015

14B Maintenance Pack 3 – Target General Availability: January 14th, 2015

Sign in with Google deprecation April 20th 2015

 


Note:
If you currently use the “Sign in with Google” capability and are unable to complete the upgrade to TEE 14A MP9 or TEE 14B (or higher) and enable the new “Sign in with Google+” capability by April 20th, 2015, it is advised that you provide a message on the Career Section Sign in section to instruct candidates to recover their password, using the “Forgot your password” function.  Candidates should be instructed to use their Google email as their Career Section user name and email address during password recovery process.
