  • Access Manager 4.4.x
  • Access Manager 4.5
  • Access Manager 4.5.1


  • Access Manager IDP server has been configure to use Advanced Authentication with OAuth
  • Authentication Contract / Method has been configured to use the Advanced Authentication Generic Class
  • Authentication Method uses "LDAP Password Only" for testing
  • Login to IDP server works without any problems
  • Logout from the IDP server seems to run as well (all IDP session cookies are cleared)
  • running a new login does not requests any user credentials and the user seems to get logged in automatically


  • This issue has been addressed to engineering

  • As a workaround to force the logout at the Advanced Authentication Server you can modify the "/opt/novell/nids/lib/webapp/jsp/logoutSuccess.jsp_latest" by adding:

    <iframe id="remoteContent" src="https://aaf-url/osp/a/TOP/auth/app/logout"  WIDTH=0 HEIGHT=0 frameborder=0></iframe>

  • If the change has been done correctly you will see the browser client will call the AA logout URL
