I'm trying to send a redirect after logout, but it is not sending properly. I tried using the hook_user_logout in a module as follows:

use Drupal\Core\Routing\TrustedRedirectResponse;

function module_user_logout($account) {
  $redirect = new TrustedRedirectResponse($url);

The send() call causes the page to crash with the message: "The __ page isn't working"

    maybe because the $url is empty ? Or maybe because you need to add return at the end of the function. Cheers

  • To add what @DenisK said, hook_user_logout() implementations aren't supposed to redirect users. That would not allow other hook_user_logout() implementations to be invoked.

To resolve current issue we need to create RouteSubscriber my_custom/src/EventSubscriber/MyCustomRouteSubscriber.php :


namespace Drupal\my_custom\EventSubscriber;

use Drupal\Core\Routing\RouteSubscriberBase;
use Drupal\Core\Routing\RoutingEvents;
use Symfony\Component\Routing\RouteCollection;

     * MyCustom Route subscriber.
    class MyCustomRouteSubscriber extends RouteSubscriberBase {

       * {@inheritdoc}
      public static function getSubscribedEvents() {
        $events = parent::getSubscribedEvents();
        $events[RoutingEvents::ALTER] = ['onAlterRoutes', -300];
        return $events;

       * {@inheritdoc}
      protected function alterRoutes(RouteCollection $collection) {
        if ($route = $collection->get('user.logout')) {
            '_controller' => '\Drupal\my_custom\Controller\MyCustomUserLogoutController::logout',


Then add entry into my_custom.services.yml:

    class: Drupal\my_custom\EventSubscriber\MyCustomRouteSubscriber
      - { name: event_subscriber }

Then create actual controller which will replace users module logout method. my_custom/src/Controller/MyCustomUserLogoutController.php


namespace Drupal\my_custom\Controller;

use Drupal\Core\Controller\ControllerBase;
use Drupal\Core\Routing\TrustedRedirectResponse;

 * Class MyCustomUserLogoutController.
class MyCustomUserLogoutController extends ControllerBase {

   * Logs the current user out.
   * @return \Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\RedirectResponse
   *   A redirection to home page.
  public function logout() {
    $logout_url = 'https://google.com'
    return new TrustedRedirectResponse($logout_url);


Hope it will save your time.
