Q - question

How to log out automatically from your Autodesk account after closing an app?

A - answer I work on a shared computer and I need to auto-logout from my Autodesk account after closing the CAD application I worked in (Fusion 360, Infraworks, BIM 360, Team, Desktop App, etc.).

The common (for all Autodesk apps) login to the Autodesk account for a given user on a given computer workstation (his/her user profile in the operating system) is stored in the LoginState.xml file. This file is located in the folder:

  • Windows:
    C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Autodesk\Web Services
  • MacOS:
    Macintosh HD > Users > USERNAME > Library, resp. ~/Library/Application Support/Autodesk/Web Services

So you can just log-out from any single Autodesk application to log-out completely. For an automatic log out, you will need to delete this file - e.g. using a "logoff-script" (see the Group policy editor, GPE), or at a given hour using the Task manager, etc.
