Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
An issue that presented in earlier versions of JBoss EAP 6 that caused Admin Console logout procedures to fail with LDAP connections has been resolved in this release. The issue arose because the logout logic expected DIGEST authentication which is not used in LDAP. In this release, the product detects if BASIC authentication is being used and, if so, uses BASIC authentication challenges to encourage the web browser to forget the cached credentials. Users can now log out of an LDAP connection to the Admin Console as expected.

Hi Darran. I was hoping you'd be able to complete the release note above with a 'fix'? 

I can't find a post or comment that outlines what we did to resolve this (and I can't read code to figure it out). I'm assuming we didn't just hide the logout button as suggested in the JIRA.

Any help you can offer is appreciated.
