Remotely logout RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Skype for Business on cloud.

    I am giving guest credentials to a client for a videocall and, at the end of the call, I would like to:

    1) change account password

    2) remotely log him out from Skype for Business

    I noticed that "/remotelogout" chat command exists for Skype ... nothing similar for Skype for Business ?

  • You could probably just disable the user account:

    then change the password in AD, re-enable the user account. Should prompt for new credentials on the open S4B client at next action.

  • I can't find a way to disable.

    I tried resetting password, denying login but already logged-on user can still use skype4business.

    I suspect there is no a way to do this.

  • I don't know why the picture I posted didn't work, try this at the skype control panel:

  • Hi Bryan,

    I can't find that setting in Azure Skype4business .. probably it is enabled only on premises installations ?

  • Might just be, I've only got experience with on-premises deployments. Doing so effectively just saves a click to Disable users from Lync/S4B. If there's an Azure control panel way to edit a user's details - things like SIP address, policies applied, etc, there should be a check box that is checked to Enable for Skype For Business. Uncheck it if it's there and Commit or Save the change.
