Sign out of Plex for kodi, how?

TeutonicfuryTeutonicfury Posts: 4Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Hi,

I must be missing something really obvious but how do I sign out of Plex for kodi addon? I don’t have a sign out option under settings within the addon. I’ve removed the device from my devices on Plex web but it’s remained logged in and removed the addon and readded but it keeps retaining my login.

Thanks.

    When you are in plex for kodi, the user name is displayed along the top row. Select it. The sign out option is right below settings....

    Not on mine it wasn’t. Under settings it said offline mode and when I selected that i never got any further issues. In the end I had to wipe kodi and start again. As I only use the Plex addon and one other it was no major issue and took a few minutes to set up. Now I’ve signed in to my login I do have the sign out option under settings.

    I'm curious - what device were you using? I've seen this on the FireTV. Uninstalling the app and reinstalling was what fixed it for me.

    The fire TV is what I’m using too. Uninstalling and reinstalling the Plex addon didn’t work for me. After reinstalling it retained the old login details. I had to remove kodi completely and do a fresh kodi install.

    Hi, this has also affected me
    Clearing the Kodi app data fixed it, but is as bad as uninstalling, so Plex, please fix this

    I have a feeling you're hitting this bug:

    Something we are looking into.

    Try revoking the device via the Authorized Devices pages on the Plex website. it should force the log out and ask you to log in again if wished.

    I re signed in, so effectively signed out the old token by editing the file. settings.xml in
    /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/script.plex
    I changed line 5 value to nothing
    <setting`` id="client.ID" value="" />
    and line 10 to nothing
    <setting id="myplex.MyPlexAccount" value= ' ' />
    Then after restarting Plex for Kodi addon it sent me to the sign in page, did the link, and all working again.

    Hi BKSteve
    Thanks for information will come in handy on some of my machines.
    I have kodi on ATV4 and i am unable to see the kodi folder so this is not going to work unfortuanetly.
    Does anyone have Any other solutions? I do not want to delete kodi and reinstall.

    Thanks for the info BKSteve. I am 100% sure this is my problem. However, I can't find the settings.xml file on my Android box and I'm not sure how I would edit it even if I did find it. Does anyone have any experience finding and editing this file on an Android box?

    OK so I used ES File Explorer. Under the document settings I had to add .xml to the displayed file types. In tools, I had to enable "show hidden files." I then found the file settings.xml in /storage/.kodi/userdata/addon_data/script.plex right where BKSteve said it would be. Edited the lines like in his message above, and it worked, I'm back up and running.

    Also from the other thread - it appears that just deleting the directory /script.plex also works. But I didn't do that so I don't know for sure.

    I can not delete plex script as i can not see it on ATV 4.
    There needs to be a way from within the pluggin to allow for a new Token
