launchpad url.exit opening in frame?

I set my url.exit parameter in BIlaunchpad.properties to a url external to our BOBJ server. When I click "Log off" link from LaunchPad the system tried to open the url in the parameter. The problem is that I get the message :"This content cannot be displayed in a frame". How do I prevent LaunchPad from trying to open the exit url in a frame?

We are running version 4.2 sp4 non fiori launchpad web interface

    As already mentioned by Denis, this happens due to certain settings to prevent clickjacking attack.

    So, as a workaround, you can try the below steps:

    1. Create a folder ExitURL inside <Tomcat Installation Dir>\webapps folder.

    2. Inside the folder above, create an html file exiturl.htm with content as below:

    <html>
    <head>
    <title> Please wait .. </title>
    <script>
    top.location = "https://www.google.co.in";
    </script>
    </head>
    <body><p>Please wait...</p></body>
    </html>
    

    3. Change the URL in the script above as required.

    4. Open the file <Tomcat Installation Dir>\webapps\BOE\WEB-INF\config\custom\BIlaunchpad.properties and modify the exit url as:

    url.exit=/ExitURL/exiturl.htm

    5. Restart Tomcat. It may take some time to become fully up and running.

    6. Login to BI Launchpad and log out to test the behavior.

    This is a security measure to prevent clickjacking.

    p.s.
    why would your exist URL point to external server ?
