How to use user API logoff in HCP HTML5 application?

Hi all,

SAP HANA Cloud Platform Docu for user API mentions a logout function. How should I exactly use this? Make a ajax oder OData read request to /userapi/logout ? Redirect the browser to /userapi/logout ?

Thanks for any hints,



Hi Wolfgang,

when you have made the settings in the neo-app.json file ...


        "path": "/services/userapi",

        "target": {

           "type": "service",

           "name": "userapi"


        "description": "UserAPI"

you can do an ajax call for the logout service.

Here is an example calling the logout service for the above service definition within a function called when a button is pressed (the function calls the service and navigates to a "logged out" page after successful service call).

  onPressButton: function() {




              "success": function(){ sap.ui.getCore().byId("idApp1").to("idView2"); }




In the browsers developer tools you can see on the network tab if the call was successful.

Best regards,
