aa exit
exits the current client session
aa exit [--[no]abort] [--[no|confirm]shutdown] [(-?|--usage)] [(-N|--no)] [(-Y|--yes)] [--[no]batch] [--cwd=directory] [--forceConfirm=[yes|no]] [(-g|--gui)] [(-F file|--selectionFile=file)] [--quiet] [--settingsUI=[gui|default]] [--status=[none|gui|default]]
aa exit exits the current client session. When you run any aa command from the CLI, or when you open the Authorization Administration GUI, you start a client session. Only one client session is running at a time, regardless of how many GUI windows you have open or how many CLIs you are using. To close the GUI you use the appropriate menu commands, and to close the CLI you can use the aa exit command. In both cases you may have the further option of shutting down the Authorization Administration client altogether, based on your preferences (see aa setprefs); if you do not, the client is still running and available for additional interaction. If you do shut down the client completely, then running any Authorization Administration command from the CLI or opening the Authorization Administration GUI starts a new client session.
This command takes the universal options available to all aa commands, as well as some general options. See the options reference page for descriptions.
controls whether to shut down any other Authorization Administration commands that may be running. Some commands allow you to specify a --persist option which keeps those commands active during a client session. Using --abort with aa exit is recommended for stopping all persistent views that have been specified with another command's --persist option.
controls the shutting down of the Authorization Administration client without getting a prompt.
Specifying --noshutdown with aa exit is essentially a non-operation: it does nothing.
See the diagnostics reference page for possible exit status values.
