DriveWorks Pro 15: Logging Out of a Browser Session [send feedback...]

Logging Out of a Browser Session

When logged into DriveWorks Live, in a browser, there are two methods available to Logout.

  • Using the Logout Hyperlink
  • Appending /bye to the Address Bar

Logout Hyperlink

All DriveWorks web pages that have the Menu module displayed will display the Logout hyperlink.

Clicking this will log the user out of the current session.

By default logging out using this method will redirect the web page to the Login page. A redirect can be applied when using this method, see Redirect the Logout URL below.

Address Bar

Typing bye in the address bar of the current URL will force a log out from the DriveWorks Live session.

Example

Current URLURL to logout
http://www.MyDriveWorksLiveURL/http://www.MyDriveWorksLiveURL/bye
http://www.MyDriveWorksLiveURL/Apps/MyProject/http://www.MyDriveWorksLiveURL/Apps/MyProject/bye

Logging out using this method will redirect the web page to the Login page. No redirect can be applied when logging out by this method.

Redirect the Logout URL

If you require logging out to redirect to a web page other than the DriveWorks Login page, follow the steps below:

  1. Locate the file navigation.xml as defined in the System Files and Custom Files section of Further Customization.
  2. Copy this file to the \Content\Custom folder.
  3. Open the copied file in Notepad.
  4. Locate the line

    <Link Name="Logout" Url="~/bye"/>

  5. Modify this line to read

    <Link Name="Logout" Url="~/bye?redirect=http://www.driveworks.co.uk"/>

    where http://www.driveworks.co.uk will be the URL to redirect to.

  6. Save and close the modified file.
