I was struggling with the same problem a few months ago and came up with (bear 

ExecStop=/bin/sh -c "loginctl kill-session --signal SIGTERM `systemctl -n1 -o 
export status \"$MAINPID\" | grep _SYSTEMD_SESSION | cut -f2 -d=`"
ExecStopPost=/bin/sh -c "loginctl terminate-session         `systemctl -n1 -o 
export status \"$MAINPID\" | grep _SYSTEMD_SESSION | cut -f2 -d=`"

This worked well (I'm not using it though, it was only some test setup),
but I was wondering if systemd couldn't help somehow, e.g. exposing
$_SYSTEMD_SESSION variable directly;

ExecStop=loginctl kill-session --signal SIGTERM $_SYSTEMD_SESSION

doesn't look so scary anymore. Another idea was to ask for new feature:


which could do exactly this.
