UDDI API - discard_authToken


Description : The discard_authToken API call is used to inform an Operator Site that the authentication token is to be discarded, effectively ending the session. Subsequent calls that use the same authToken will be rejected. This message is optional for Operator Sites that do not manage session state or that do not support the get_authToken message.

Upon successful completion, a dispositionReport is returned with a single success indicator. Discarding an expired authToken is processed and reported as a success condition.
