As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Hi,

I have to login to WebFOCUS Reporting Portal from a different front end screen through Single Sign On (SSO). After getting into the Reporting Portal, When the user logs off, I have to redirect to a different URL and then close that browser tab. I used window.close() in the JS file but it closes only IE browser. It doesn't work in Chrome and Firefox.

I have tried many options like:
var url = 'www.mysite.com';
window.open(url);
window.close();

--------------------

window.open(location, '_self', '');
window.close();

-------------------------
But none helped. Can anyone please suggest me ways to close chrome and firefox browser through Javascript.

In the client admin console, have your tried setting the IBI_Signout_Redirect_URL parameter under Configuration/Application Setting/Security?

We are an IE shop but we have this set to our Infonet Home Page.

Hi,

IBI_Signout_Redirect_URL parameter has been set by the Admin Team to the correct URL. On Logoff, it redirects to the URL that is been set up in the IBI_Signout_Redirect_URL parameter which happens as expected. THe problem is in closing the browser tab after redirecting. The JS window.close(); doesn't seem to work in Chrome and Firefox.

Once you've redirected to your signout page, WebFOCUS is no longer involved. This is purely a html/js process at this point. My suggestion is to talk to the people that created the logout page and have them add the necessary JS to close the page.

Hi,

This works in Chrome:

open(location, '_self').close();
