#5320 new enhancement

Add a logout hook

Reported by: Boris Bobrov Owned by:

It could be useful to have a hook in the logout view for authentication plugins.

For example, I've made a plugin to use HTTP Authentication but the logout need to be done externally. I've made the attached patch which allows to redirect to any other internal/external page, but it can be discussed and ameliorated...

Thanks in advance!

Milestone: 0.9.0

Would be nice indeed, but I'm removing enhancements since we're in freeze to 0.9.0. If someone does this though, would be great to merge.

As I now have an account, I can maybe explain a bit where this request come from since it was kindly added by breton for me.

I need this kind of hook to integrate MediaGoblin with the SSO of YunoHost to really log out the user when she/he clicks on "Log out"... However, I'm sure this proposal of patch can be improved and would be glad to discuss that.
