Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

To reproduce:

  1. Go to Data Explorer and sign in.
  2. From your profile, hit up "change openid" and provide some new credentials. (I was trying to go from SE OpenID to Google.)
  3. Something dies with the boring generic error below and the change doesn't go through.

Server Error in '/' Application.

Runtime Error

Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off".

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

        <customErrors mode="Off"/>

Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.

<!-- Web.Config Configuration File -->

        <customErrors mode="RemoteOnly" defaultRedirect="mycustompage.htm"/>

I can't reproduce this (switched from OpenID to Yahoo). That error message is designed to tell you nothing, by the way. – Asad Saeeduddin Jan 4 '13 at 2:55
@Asad I'm aware that it's designed to tell me nothing. I'm just saying that that's where the relative helpfulness of my report drops right off. But thanks for the no-repro note... :) I updated the post with the specific OpenIDs involved. – Adam Lear Jan 4 '13 at 2:56
Yup, that breaks it. – Asad Saeeduddin Jan 4 '13 at 2:59
Reproduced, checking... – Tim Stone Jan 4 '13 at 2:59

Yeah, that was....yeah. Sorry about that. Fixed in the next revision > 2012.9.7.6.

In the near future the goal is to directly support multiple OpenID providers like the main network does, so the relevant code will get some further cleanup when that happens.
