XIA Automation Server does not handle authentication directly - the ability to log out of the system is handled by Internet Information Services (IIS) and your web browser.

Integrated Authentication

When using Integrated Authentication, it is not possible to log out of a session as opening the browser and connecting to XIA Automation Server will again perform an NTLM / Kerberos secure login automatically.

Basic Authentication

When using Basic Authentication, it is possible to log out by:

  • Ensuring that you do not allow the web browser to save any passwords if prompted

  • Close all browser windows

Attempting to access the XIA Automation Server again will prompt for credentials. In a secure environment, it is recommended to ensure that users check that they are again being prompted for credentials before assuming their session is finished.
