Ory OAuth2: OIDC Logout

AUTHOR: Ory Team

Ory OAuth2 now implements the logout endpoint for OpenID Connect (OIDC) protocol, which makes signing out from applications easy and secure.

By calling


the user's current session is terminated, allowing for end-user initiated logout and removing the need for calls to Ory OAuth2 administrative APIs.

Note that logging out via OAuth2 does not end a the user session on the identity provider: You wouldn't want an app that uses social sign-in to log you out of your Google or Facebook account, only out of the particular app; in a similar fashion, Ory Identities sessions remain active so that the user can keep using other applications that use the same federated identity.
