Pinned topic Session Timeout For Portal and Process Admin

‏2012-09-25T16:03:31Z |
Hi,
I am planning to set session timeout for portal and process admin components of IBM BPM 8.0.

I tried setting Session timeout on admin console(Application server) and at web.xml of portal.war.
But nothing seems working. did any one configured this value?

Looks like it is not possible in IBM BPM 7.5.0 based below link, please comment.

Thanks,
Subhani

    Hi Subhani,

    Perhaps it will be fixed in BPM 8.0.1 (which is announced for mid november), as it is already fixed in 7.5.1. fixpack 1.

    Yes, as per IBM support also this is a product issue.
    May be its going to be addressed in one of the upcoming 8.0 fix packs.

    Subhani,

    It's doable .In version 7.2 we faced issue where the default portal session time out was 60 mins or smthing.When user is working on a coach and the time exceeds then they get an error msg "you have been signed out because of security reasons". We got rid of this changing the web.xml under portal.Again you have to make the chnages in two eb.xml files ......I fogot the excat path.Will try to find that for you.

    Hope that helps .

    Thanks !

    30 minutes by default if I don't make a mistake.
