Customer reports they are not using SSO / Multi-Provider SSO yet when a user try to access ServiceNow instance in browser, user is redirected to external_logout_complete.do page stating below message on screen:
You have successfully logged out.
Release or Environment
Applicable to all releases
SSO / Multi-Provider SSO is one of the external authentication methods available and not the only one. Therefore, in this case when Multi-Provider SSO is not active, it confirms some other external authentication is active which is broken or misconfigured. System property glide.authenticate.external controls enabling / disabling external authentication.
For a quick relief, set system property glide.authenticate.external value as false and check what other external authentication is customer using and you can fix it according.
