[keycloak-user] Node Adapter check logout

Hi folks,

Trying to figure this one out….

If I login to my NodeJS based web app in a web browser I get prompted to
login and do so and the Keycloak adapter seems to initialise itself
correctly etc.

Then for example, I go to bed but leave the browser window open, after a
while, Keycloak will close down the session, as you’d expect. But if you
rerun kc.init:

kc.init({ onLoad: 'check-sso', token, refreshToken })
  .success(authenticated => {
    if (authenticated) {
      SkinStore.kc = kc;
      store.getState().keycloak = kc;
      ReactDOM.render(<App/>, document.getElementById('root'));

    } else {
      console.log('Error to authenticate');
      ReactDOM.render(<App/>, document.getElementById('root'));


It returns authenticated = true, yet I can look in the Keycloak server and
see there are no active sessions for that client.

Yet I can also see the iframe check to:
a 204 and seems happy.

What am I missing here?

I’m testing in a private chrome window against a test Keycloak server and
everything else seems okay, if I shut the tab and open a new one I get
prompted to log back in etc
