Saml Single Logout - in a session with Multiple Participants

I would like to check my understanding of Okta's behaviour around Single Log out.

From the spec: http://docs.oasis-open.org/security/saml/v2.0/saml-profiles-2.0-os.pdf

User-added image
Arrow 3 has the description: `issued to other session participant, if another session participant exists.`

However; from the Okta docs: https://support.okta.com/help/articles/Knowledge_Article/Using-the-App-Integration-Wizard#Config_SAMLSettings

`Enable Single Logout`:  Allows users to log out of both a configured custom app and Okta with a single click (but not out of other apps that may be open).

My understanding of the above statement is Okta currently will not notify other session participants in the event of a log out? 

Is this correct; or have I mis-understood something?

 

Thanks,
Brent

Hi Brent
This is correct.

Is there any plans in the future that this will change so we can logout of other apps that may be open ?

Also, I would like to know if a logout with the OpenId Connect protocol allows to achieve a REAL central logout from all opened apps ? Thank you.
