This function add a URL and page title to the navigation history for a current user session in the Remote Management Server, allowing you to track events that would not otherwise be reflected in the navigation history (like an AJAX form submission, for example). This navigation event will last until another navigation event occurs or the session is closed.

kp_KioWare_registerNavigation(url, title, callback);
  • url = [required] defines the URL of the event to be saved in the navigation history for the current user session.
  • title = [required] defines the page title of the event to be saved in the navigation history for the current user session.
  • callback = [optional] name of callback function which will be called with the following signature: callback(success).
Callback format
Callback return values success = if defined, the function successfully triggered and saved an event in the navigation history.


Added in version 7.3

This function allows you to manually end a user session in the Remote Management Server without triggering the idle timer or redirecting to the homepage. This may be useful if the project does not use the app's native idle timer (as that is generally what triggers the close of a user session).
