I need to logout a user after successful registration to login page.

I tried to redirect the user after registration by creating a observer customer_register_success but it dint work, When the observer is called the loggin action is not triggered so I added a redirection that will solve my problem but dint. its working as usual.

public function execute(Observer $observer)
      $this->messageManager->addErrorMessage(__('Your account is not approved.'));


I tried with this link belo but it only works with login page and not in registration process.

I used this extension to trigger after Registration https://github.com/php-cuong/magento2-redirect-customer it used customer_login observer.

I did my logic to logout and redirect.

public function execute(Observer $observer)
   $objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
   $customerSession = $objectManager->create('Magento\Customer\Model\Session');

   if($this->uri->isValid($particular_page)) {
      $resultRedirect = $this->responseFactory->create();

It can be easily done by the following module.


Done by 2 methods

1.Event customer_register_success

 public function execute(\Magento\Framework\Event\Observer $observer)
        $this->coreRegistry->register('is_new_account', true);

2.Override Magento\Customer\Model\Account\Redirect

    // Adding a custom message
    $this->messageManager->addErrorMessage(__('Your account is not approved. Kindly contact website admin for assitance.'));
    // Destroy the customer session in order to redirect him to the login page
    /** @var \Magento\Framework\Controller\Result\Redirect $result */
    $result = $this->resultFactory->create(ResultFactory::TYPE_REDIRECT);
    return $result
