Wikimedia Bugzilla is closed!

Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description Melancholie 2008-05-27 21:32:46 UTC
You do not get logged out on the wiki you have logged in if you log out somewhere else!

Log in at [[de:]], log out at [[wikt:de:]], and you will still be logged in at [[:de:]]!
Comment 1 Melancholie 2008-05-27 21:40:20 UTC
Also happens if log-in at [[en:]] and log-out at [[de:]] for example (but not always, as it seems?)
Comment 2 Charles Melbye 2008-05-27 23:29:44 UTC
Please note that this is only [[Help:Unified_login|unified login]], not [[en:Single Sign-on]]. This means that although you login to one project, you won't automatically be logged into all Wikimedia projects, and vice-versa. I'm not sure if Brion has plans to make this a Single Sign-on system or not.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2008-05-28 01:18:20 UTC
Yes, that's already enabled... hence the bug report about inconsistencies with it. :)

This is a known, but mildly annoying issue.
Comment 4 Melancholie 2008-05-28 20:48:40 UTC
Mildly annoying?
The reason for a logout is for example the prevention from *account abuse by others* (in public, by brothers/sisters or friends); for example ;-)
Comment 5 Tim Starling 2008-05-29 06:44:18 UTC
The local wiki seems to give valid local login cookies. This is incorrect, only centralauth cookies should be valid for login.
Comment 6 Tim Starling 2008-05-29 07:52:00 UTC
Should be fixed in r35533, I'll close this bug when it goes live.
