Changing the Destination of the Logout Link
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:
- 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
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">https://cas.institution.edu/cas/logout</result> <!-- CAS:END -->
- Re-jar the files if you extracted them in Step 1
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.
