Adjusting HTTP Session Timeout

The default timeout value for an inactive user session is 30 minutes. This means that when a user closes their browser without logging out first, their user session and any open host sessions will be cleaned up after 30 minutes. The minimum timeout value allowed is 600 seconds (10 minutes). You can configure this setting on the server.

  1. Open <install directory>/sessionserver/microservices/sessionserver/service.yml.

  2. Adjust the session timeout value in the env section of the file:

     - name: server.servlet.session.timeout
       value: <desired-time-in-seconds>


    The indentation formatting is important.

  3. Restart the server.
