1717945 - Backend is not logged off upon log off in Portal


When using an appintegrator iView to integrate an ABAP-based backend application (e.g. a WebDynpro, BW, BSP...) in SAP portal, HTTP Security Session Management might not be correctly set(Ensure settings are the same in both sides Portal/backend by following SAP Note 2120280). 
-Main symptoms are:
  • User logs off the portal without closing the browser, and the same browser window is subsequently used by a different user to login, the second user sees the first user's content in the backend application.
  • Backend session is not getting terminated upon Portal log off.



  • SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Portal all releases
  • AS ABAP 7.0 EHP2 (SAP_BASIS 7.02) or AS ABAP 7.2 (SAP_BASIS 7.20) and subsequent releases
  • ABAP HTTP Security Session Management enabled
  • BW content.
