APM How to simulate user session log out

Hi everyone!



I'm trying to close a session using an irule. When the user access to "/" I would like to close the sessión but like if the user were logged out (not an admin termination). I'm using this irule:





if { [HTTP::uri] equals "/" }{


ACCESS::session remove


HTTP::redirect "http://[HTTP::host]"







At the end I'm redirected to https://myhost/my.logout.php3?errorcode=20 so is a little confuse to the users.



Can any one let me know how to close the session in a clean way?



Than you in advance!

  • Try this instead:



    HTTP::redirect /vdesk/hangup.php3


  • Hi milk_man,


    I've tried that but it happens the same. I'm always redirected to an error page.



    Looking at LTM log I get this message:


    Jul 3 09:31:00 tmm2 err tmm2[10191]: 011f0007:3: http_process_state_prepend - Invalid action EV_SINK_HEADER during ST_HTTP_PREPEND_HEADERS (Client side: vip=/Common/APM_Test_vs profile=http addr= port=0 rtdom_id=0 client_ip=X.X.X.X)
  • Remove the 'ACCESS::session remove' and use the redirect statement that MiLK_MaN mentioned. That should provide a normal user disconnection.



  • Hi guys!



    At the end I used the redirect you tell me but in an HTTP_REQUEST event:



    when HTTP_REQUEST {


    if { [HTTP::uri] contains "/" }{


    HTTP::redirect "https://[HTTP::host]/vdesk/hangup.php3"







    If I used ACL_ACCESS_ALLOWED event the browser close the session abruptly maybe because it's identifying an attack.
  • In an ACCESS_ACL_ALLOWED event you must use

    ACCESS::respond 302 location [HTTP::host]

    to avoid the ST_HTTP_PREPEND_HEADERS error.
