Goal

You have a Site Studio web site where users can browse anonymously or choose to sign in to see additional secured content. You also have created some custom cookies and want the cookies to be persistent.  When the user specifies Auth=Internet to force a sign in, they get redirected to adfAuthentication and sign-in it works correctly. You have found that if the user logs out access to /oamsso/logout.html, that killed the OAM session; but UCM cookies (JSESSIONID and TOMCAT_JSESSIONID) are not expired.  If the user logs out with the logout URL:

it expire all the session cookies, including the custom ones.
