You can look at Encapsulated Tokens [0]. For this, the users must pre-exist on all the publish instances, if this is not possible, then you should use sticky connections.

 

To close the session, you can use session.logout(), check [1].

Assuming that you have the Session a valid non-null object, you can easily just call the logout method. Example Below:

 

 

if (session != null && session.isLive()) {
     session.logout();
}

 

But it really depends on the context. How is the session obtained?

Hi,

can you please describe what you mean with "session logout" in more detail? The term "session" can describe a lowlevel implementation API, which does have a logout method. On the other hand side it can also mean the session of a user, which has authenticated against an AEM authoring instance and is working, until he logs out (and cannot visit the UI of that authoring instance until he logs in again).

Dependent on that the answer is quite different 🙂

Hi @dhiraj85 

 

To logout, you can use session.logout() method of JCR Session API. Refer https://www.programcreek.com/java-api-examples/?class=javax.jcr.Session&method=logout for eaxmples.

 

Hope it helps!

Thanks,
