    Question

    In WebVoyage, how should logout and exit.do be set?

    Answer

    When a user logs out (option.startPage variable), he or she might not be done using WebVoyage, so it's useful to redirect to a WebVoyage page. In webvoyage.properties, that looks like this:
    # Which page should the system return to on logout?
    #==============================================================================#
    option.startPage=searchBasic


    When a user clicks the logo or allows the session to time out, the exit.do action occurs (option.exitURL variable). In webvoyage.properties, it looks like this:
    #==============================================================================#
    # What page or URL should the system go to in response to the exit.do action?
    # This can be a WebVoyage page, such as searchBasic, or an external URL
    #==============================================================================#
    option.exitURL=/index.html

    It is possible to set option.exitURL to a WebVoyage page, but Voyager Support recommends setting this to a page outside of WebVoyage. If it's set to an internal page (such as searchBasic), sessions will go into a loop: time out, redirect to a page that creates a new session, time out, create a new session, etc. A web browser left idle will continue creating sessions even if it's not in use.
