How can we logout from EWM using java code

Spoorthy KP (21) | asked May 28, 2:30 a.m.
We have a scheduler that runs every 15mins, and everytime when it fetch certain value from ewm workitem.
It is taking from cached value but not the current value in EWM workitem. So we want to try logging out from EWM after the scheduler run completes. So is there any way we can logout from ALM programmatically using Java.

I'm not aware of a "log me out" operation - the closest equivalent in HTTP terms would be to delete the session where you're connected to ELM so the authentication cookie is erased. I'm not sure how that's done in Java but presumably connecting creates a POJO and you have to ensure it's deleted?

The question leaves the important information out: which API do you use.
It also is likely asking the wrong question.
  1. If you use the Plain Java Client Libraries/SDK, 
    1. There is a logout that is shown in the snippets that come with the Plain Java client libraries.
    2. There is no need to log out. You can use the caching mode to resolve/refresh/reload the item.
Other APIs might provide different answers, so consider putting more effort into your question, if you are interested in an answer.

We are getting cached value every time the scheduler runs, we don't want this to happen.
We have tried using logout() and shutdown() method so that we get data from the rtc server for every scheduler run.

Did you read the answer? I am not so sure.

Your are likely using the Plain Java Client Libraries.

Dependent on the code you use, you can pass parameters to refresh the item. e.g. in IItemManager.fetch* or IAuditableCommon.resolveAuditable().
