IssueWith SAML logout enabled 'logout' button is missing.
- The Tableau Server setting wgserver.saml.logout.enabled is set to true.
- SAML login is working fine, but no logout button shows up in the Tableau Server GUI.
- Tableau Server
- Server-wide SAML Authentication
ResolutionEnsure the Identity Provider is generating the following element in its IDPSSODescriptor block in its SAML metadata:
<md:SingleLogoutService Binding="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:bindings:HTTP-POST" Location="IDP-URL-HERE/<slo-endpoint>" />
CauseEven with wgserver.saml.logout.enabled set to true, Tableau Server will not display a logout button unless a valid SingleLogoutService binding is set.
Additional InformationTableau Server requires the HTTP-POST binding.
