Try to put your code inside the below using statement to see if it helps:

 using (new Sitecore.Sites.SiteContextSwitcher(website))
  • Hi Site context is coming corructly using Sitecore.Context.Site. but Sitecore.Context.User is not coming corructly based on site.

You can try the following solutions to make it work. The first approach you can try is using UserSwitcher using the below code.

using (new UserSwitcher("domain\\username"))
    // your code here

The second approach you can use is to get the currently active user and then use the AuthenticationManager.Logout() to log out the user using the below code.

var virtualUser = Sitecore.Security.Authentication.AuthenticationManager.GetActiveUser();

Hope this will solve your issue.

  • I want to logout specific domain virtual user not all the active users. the current code which you explained is already using and not working as expected
