Log Off – (available if form-based authentication has been enabled at your site). The actions taken as a result of selecting Log Off are determined by the form-based authentication solution that is in place. The solution implementation usually includes ending your Windchill session and capturing the log off event in the Windchill audit log. When your session ends, you lose access to any data that had been present in the window and cannot complete any activities that you had initiated that require additional input, such as a search or check in. By default, after you log off, you are presented with a login form that allows you to log back in.
For more information about enabling and configuring a form-based authentication solution, see Configuring an Alternative Authentication in Windchill.
