Setting the Session Inactivity Time

The default inactivity timeout value for a BIS session is 600 seconds (10 minutes). However, the inactivity timeout value can be changed in several ways:

Of these, the BIS_SESSION_INACTIVITY_TIMEOUT variable and InactivityTimeout option keyword have the lowest priority and are overridden by either the B_SetInactivityTimeout call or the SessionParms tag.

The largest value that the session inactivity timeout interval can be set to is 1,000,000 seconds (about 11 days).
