I am seeking a way to trigger a redirect on user logout.

One obvious way to do this seems liable to cause problems. The event of logout can be used to trigger a plugin using the event onUserLogout. It's then possible, in the plugin, to call $app->redirect("/some/url"); where $app is the current application object.

However, this has the potentially serious drawback that it seems to stop the processing of plugins that want to be called by onUserLogout. There may be other plugins that need to run. It also breaks any plugin that has called $app->logout().

Is there a way to cause a redirect on logout without this problem?

in theory i can follow you but have you experienced any issues regarding this? i mean - i‘ve never had such issues before. on the other hand you can also sort plugins. just an idea but you could „just“ order the plugins and try if this would work. otherwise i would recommend to build a scenario and open a bug report on github.

  • Yes, I spent hours diagnosing the problem. It's true the former issue can be fixed by sorting plugins, but the latter cannot. I had two plugins - one did the redirect, the other called logout but did not receive a return because of the first one and therefore broke. It is a question of usage, I'm not clear that it can be described as a bug.
