Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

1)open the web browser and type the 192.168.50.2/ovirt in the address pane.
2)input the UserName and Password (ovirtadmin ovirt)
Since then,we can’t log out the account of ovirtadmin
we can’t log out any user logged in the ovirt system
we can log out any user logged in the ovirt system as we need
not a doc bug. However, may bhave doc implications, so I've put myself on the CC list.
user sign-in/sign-out in oVirt is intentionally delegated to a separate single-sign-on system by default. The http username/password authentication is just a fallback for the case when a proper single-sign-on system (i.e. kerberos or a certificate management system) is not in place. Therefore I don't think we want to provide a logout button since in most cases it would make no sense to have one. To work around this for the username/password case, just close and restart your browser and log in as a different user.
