For being able to redirect to the original page, we would need to pass it through, but when I debugged it last time to produce the linked commit, it just told openid to return to the /response page.

An alternative would be to use a cookie on the openQA side to keep track of the last page visited.

If you think this is something useful and feasible and look into then you can do that so I assigned the ticket back to you. If you think it's not possible then you can reject this ticket and we will still try in #89710 to have at least newer openQA versions support that again, that's ok as well :)

I reject this issue, as I do not want to get into coding ipsilon/python and a possible workaround exists on the client side.
