sign-out

The sign-out API ends the current session.

Note: This method is deprecated. We recommend you use the logout method to end the current session.

URL

/qcbin/authentication/sign-out

Remarks

Logging off ends the session by setting the session cookie to expired.

Caution: When a session ends, all locks are released. Therefore, if an application connects to a new session, discard all data downloaded previously. If you do not, a PUT operation can overwrite changes made by another user while the entity was not locked.
