XPages - What happens to your sessionScope if you logout on the web?

Short Answer

Your sessionScope remains. This may cause confusion if you have several logins on a Domino server and store data in sessionScope.

Maybe not a typical use case but I had a case where Power Users switch users for testing functionality. They store UNIDs for caching in the sessionScope.


Custom Logout function and clearing variables. A nice example can be found on the blog from Tommy Valand at


The LDD Wiki says that a logout should clear sessionScope which it did not in this case.
In some way this makes sense as you can have a sessionScope whether being anonymous or logged-in but I am not sure if this is a bug then.
