Update from IChain to Access Gateway Requires Change to GroupWise Webaccess Logout URL

This document (7002871) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.


Novell Access Manager 3 Netware Access Gateway
Novell GroupWise 8
Novell GroupWise 7
Novell iChain 2.3


Logging out of GroupWise Webaccess no longer passes the correct logout URL after upgrading from IChain to Access Managers Access Gateway.


As of Netware Access Gateway build 3.0 IR2, the old iChain logout paths of
/ICSLogout and /BM-Logout are no longer supported. The new path is /AGLogout.
Similar changes to the Linux Access Gateway are also expected in IR2. Products
such as Groupwise Webaccess which have default settings and/or help information
in the admin tool(s) should be updated to reflect these changes going forward.

The GroupWise Webaccess Application uses information the WEBACC.CFG file to send the correct logout URL.  The section for the directive to use the Access Gateway should look like the following example:

# Specifies a Logout URL for a specific 'Trusted Server'
# (e.g. Security.Logout.Url.<ip address OR domain name>=
# Each 'Trusted server' can have its own logout url if desired.
