Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Technical Overview

Administrator Ends Session

Access Manager Administrators with appropriate permissions can terminate a user session at any time. When an administrator ends a session, the following events occur:

  1. The administrator uses Sessions tab in the Access Manager console to end the user’s session.

  2. The Logout Service receives the Logout request, and then performs the following steps:

    1. Marks user’s session as destroyed.

    2. Destroys session.

  3. The Session Service notifies applications which are configured to interact with the session.

    In this case, each of the policy agents was configured for Session Notification, and each is sent a document instructing the agent that the session is now invalid.

  4. The policy agents flush the session from cache and the user session ends.
