How to logout from CoreSight when using Windows Integrated Security?

Hi All,


We use CoreSight on Windows Integrated Security.I am wondering how i can logout from CoreSight. Of course there is no need to have a logout button in CoreSight, and the question is more related to the browser and WIS than to CoreSight.


Let's explain the situations first:

  • Situation 1: If i access CoreSight from a computer in the domain (and the browser settings are correct), the logged-on user's identity is used to logon. No questions asked.
  • Situation 2: if i access CoreSight from a computer outside of the domain (e.g. over the internet) then a popup appears where the browser asks to enter the user credentials.


Now my questions:

  • In situation 1, how could i logon using a different user account? Is that at all possible?
  • In situation 2, the credentials are kept for quite some time. It can take 2/3 days before i am asked again to enter my credentials. How can i switch to a different account in this case? How to remove the (cached?) user credentials?


I think this is related how windows and/or browsers retain user credentials, or IIS keeps sessions or Kerberos tickets. But i'm out of my knowledge zone here...
