This page describes how to customise the destination of the logout page, for integration with a Single Sign On framework.

To configure a new logout, redirect by changing the way Confluence handles the logout action:

  1. un-jar the confluence-x.y.z.jar file in $confluence-install/confluence/WEB-INF/lib, to another location. You can use a standard zip application or the java -jar command 
    Alternative to un-jar-ing, edit the xwork.xml directly in the jar file
  2. Locate xwork.xml.
  3. Change the behavior of logout.action by altering these lines:

    <!-- <result name="success" type="velocity">/logout.vm</result> -->
    <!-- CAS:START - CAS Logout Redirect -->
    <result name="success" type="redirect"></result>
    <!-- CAS:END -->
  4. Re-jar the files if you extracted them in Step 1
tip/resting Created with Sketch.

This example is taken from a CAS customization. What was done here was to comment out the regular success action: /logout.vm, and instead replace it with a redirect to the your custom logout page.
