HI Petr


Can you qualify "has a valid Kerberos Ticket"?

In my case, my user has a valid ticket on the LDAP server, but not on the
OSX workstation from which I am using Firefox / Web UI.

User is automatically logged-in back if he has a valid Kerberos ticket.

The reason is that after showing the login form, the whole UI is
reloaded in order to forget everything in the app memory. It then
behaves as normal access and SSO kicks in.

IPA had a logout page but it was removed. One reason was that PatternFly
says that when a session expires(which, in a way, is a logout), user
should be presented with a login page. As we see, with SSO, the behavior
is a little bit different and unexpected.

I've created a new ticket:
