The "logout" Link Relation

The "logout" link relation is used to reference a resource that logs out the current "user." The href attribute must point to the same origin as the current document.

When specified within a <link> element, the user agent MUST NOT request the resource, except as follows:

  • The title attribute is used as a "grouping" identifier -- all open documents within the same domain that have the same title attribute value are considered in the same "group."
  • Upon closing all documents in the same group, the URI specified by the href attribute of the last window is sent a POST request with an empty body by the user agent.

An example:

  <link rel="logout" title="groupA" href="http://domain.tld/logout?param=value" />
