Redirect to Liferay page after logout in CAS

To redirect any webpage after logout in CAS, follow the instructions below:

1. Change Liferay CAS configuration. Go to
Control Panel > Settings > Authentication > CAS

2. Update “Logout URL” property:


${my-logout-page}: http://lfry01:8080/web/guest/lfry01-logout-page

3. Change CAS configuration. Set the “followServiceRedirects” property to “true”
on the “logoutController” bean defined in the cas-servlet.xml.

[root@directorysrv1 ~]# vim /usr/share/tomcat5/webapps/cas-server-webapp-3.3.5/WEB-INF/cas-servlet.xml
<bean id="logoutController" class="org.jasig.cas.web.LogoutController"

4. Re-start Tomcat (CAS-server):

[root@directorysrv1 ~]# service tomcat5 restart
Stopping tomcat5:                                          [  OK  ]
Starting tomcat5:                                          [  OK  ]
[root@directorysrv1 ~]#

5. Test redirect.

    Hi Roger,

    Till now, I can’t find any information on this one. If i set CAS and the ldap configuration enabled, how do I access user or any similar admin user? Right now, all my ldap users are just normal users.

    When i login using, i see this:-
    The credentials you provided cannot be determined to be authentic.

    I will like to change the settings like above, just no idea. Any help? Thanks.

    • No, you should login with test because you have not disabled this auth method. Test admin user is not of ldad or cas system.

      Try to delete cookies, close sessions, etc. several times this is cause of error.
