Identity Cloud


The /oauth2/connect/endSession endpoint is defined in OpenID Connect Session Management 1.0 - draft 5.

Use this endpoint to terminate authenticated end-user sessions. For details on ending session state, refer to Session management.

To find the URL for this endpoint, read the end_session_endpoint field of the well-known configuration endpoint for the realm:

$ curl https://<tenant-env-fqdn>/am/oauth2/realms/root/realms/alpha/.well-known/openid-configuration
  "...": "...",
  "end_session_endpoint": "https://<tenant-env-fqdn>/am/oauth2/realms/root/realms/alpha/connect/endSession",
  "...": "..."

Supported parameters

The end session endpoint supports the following query parameters:

Parameter Description Required


Uniquely identifies the application making the request.

This parameter is not compliant with the specification.

Yes, when the ID token is encrypted


Previously issued ID token identifying the end user’s session.



Redirect to this URI after logout.

This must match one of the values in the Sign-out URLs setting of the client profile.

By default, this profile setting is empty. To update the setting in the Identity Cloud admin UI, go to Applications > Client ID > Sign On.


The post_logout_redirect_uri parameter determines the result on successful logout:

  • If included, Identity Cloud redirects to the specified location.

  • If omitted, Identity Cloud returns HTTP 204 No Content to indicate the end user logged out.


Identity Cloud deletes the end user’s session on successful logout and redirects to the post logout URL:

$ curl \
--dump-header - \
--request GET \
HTTP/2 302
content-length: 0
