Benefits and Description

To support existing HTML forms-based authentication, Windchill 10.1 M010 adds support for log off, session-timeout, and error handling. Customers using a forms-based authentication solution to log on and log off can now find added support from the Log Off link, located on the Quick Links dropdown menu. The Log Off link does not apply if you are using protocol-based (basic) authentication. In addition, Windchill 10.1 M010 handles user session-timeouts in a more predictable and user-friendly manner and provides better error handling when a session cannot easily be re-authenticated.

The "Log Off" link is available from the "Quick Links" menu.
