Sitefinity - Caching issue for pages with NO CACHING profile

ISSUE

In our Sitefinity project, we have a page "Application" for which we set view permission to allow only users having role "USERS". (i.e only USERS can access the page).

Once USERS logged in, we are redirecting them to the Application page, once they are logged out, we are redirecting them back to the homepage.

The problem is after log out and they redirected to the homepage, if they hit BACK button in the browser, the Application page is still accessible (from CACHE), and if we reload, then only it redirects to the login page.

The Application page caching is set to NO Caching in the Sitefinity but still this behavior.

The expecting behavior is once user logged out and if they hit back button, we need to redirect to the login page.

Solution

You must go to the No Cache profile's parameters, to do that go to

Administration > Settings > Advanced > System > Output Cache Settings > Page Cache Profiles > No Caching > Parameters and click Create new. (see the picture on top)

On the page that loads enter:

Key: setNoStore
Value: True

Then Save changes.

Now click on the No Caching Profile, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the "Enabled" checkbox, then Save changes.

Now Sitefinity must be restarted.

This should fix the issue you are having.
