I have sp application where there are 15 subsite.I need to redirect each subsite to the respective logout page when i click logout.How do i achieve this & properly logout each respective subsite?

No need to LOGOUT each SubSite but simple call this page in the _layouts virtual folder (available from wherever in SharePoint) use

(the / in front would make your link relative to your site collection) /_layouts/signOut.aspx

C:\PS>Set-SPCustomLayoutsPage -Identity “_layouts/signout.aspx” -Relat ivePath “/_layouts/custompages/mysignout.aspx” -WebApplication “http:/ /server_name/mywebapp” – Nikhil Jangle Apr 22 '12 at 7:22
I'm a little confused about your definition of subSite as custom login pages are set Web Application wide. On the other hand ADFS issues an STS-specific cookie (MSISSignOut) to performed logout across all relying parties, which is Session Based (close browser and you loose it), but NOT lost by navigating simply to SignOUt page - need to close or remove it manually. – Marius Constantinescu - MVP Apr 22 '12 at 17:19
well i created a application page where i wrote javascript to "clearauthenticationcache" . logout works fine in IE but mozilla and firefox i cannot successfully logout. – Nikhil Jangle Apr 29 '12 at 13:32
could you explain how to remove the session manually ? – Nikhil Jangle Apr 29 '12 at 13:33
