Logout

/v1/users/logout

Use the /v1/users/logout endpoint to logout of the WhatsApp Business API Client. Logging out revokes the authentication token.

If you want to log a user out or revoke the user's token, use the DELETE /v1/users endpoint instead. Note: This action deletes the user from the system.

Request

The request for logging out a user account, by a user, looks like this:

POST /v1/users/logout
Authorization: Bearer your-auth-token

Logging out of the WhatsApp Business API Client will explicitly revoke the authentication token sent with the request. Any other tokens associated with the same username remain valid.

Note: Generating an authentication token is discussed in Login and Authentication.

Response

The response to the logout request will contain a meta object in response body.
