Question


How to I change the max session time for users on the windows client so that their session will expire after 1 hour of inactivity?


Answer


You can set session timeout values, as follows:


1. Click on the Admin tab.


2. Click on System Control.


3. Click on Configuration.


4. Click on Site Admin.


5. Set the Exp Timeout and Invalid Timeout values in increments of minutes (e.g., 60 for 1 hour).


6. Click on the Save button.


After a session is idle and exceeds the expiry timeout value, the user can re-engage in the current activity but only after re-entering their login credentials. While once the session reaches the invalid timeout, there is no possibility for re-engaging in the current activity after re-entering their login credentials.
