Logout Page

The logout page is responsible for terminating the user’s authentication session. This is a potentially complicated process and involves these steps:

  • Ending the session by removing the authentication session cookie in your IdentityServer.
  • Possibly triggering sign-out in an external provider if an external login was used.
  • Notify all client applications that the user has signed out.
  • If the logout is client initiated, redirect the user back to the client.

When IdentityServer needs to show the logout page, it redirects the user to a configurable LogoutUrl.

builder.Services.AddIdentityServer(opt => {
    opt.UserInteraction.LogoutUrl = "/path/to/logout";

If no LogoutUrl is set, IdentityServer will infer it from the LogoutPath of your Cookie Authentication Handler. For example:

    .AddCookie("cookie-handler-with-custom-path", options => 
        options.LogoutPath = "/path/to/logout/from/cookie/handler";

If you are using ASP.NET Identity, configure its cookie authentication handler like this:


    .ConfigureApplicationCookie(options => 
        options.LogoutPath = "/path/to/logout/for/aspnet_identity";
