    Hi,

     

    I'm looking for a way to change the session timeout on sigma/portal. Right now you get logged out after 20 minutes, but one of our customers wants to increase this timeout to 30 minutes.

     

    Is this even possible? If yes, where do i do this?

     

    Thank you.

    What release are you running?

    Is it configured with CA SSO?

    The Portal session may cause performance and security issues in your deployment.

    You can adjust the default timeout period to work around both issues. Edit the web.xml file to change the Portal session timeout period from the default setting.

    Follow these steps:

    1. Locate and open the web.xml file located in the following directory:
      gm_home/Server/eurekify-jboss/server/eurekify/deployers/jbossweb.deployer/
    2. Locate and change the session configuration section timeout variable:
       <session-config>       <session-timeout>30</session-timeout>   </session-config>

      Note: The unit of time is minutes.

    3. Save changes to the file and close.

    Thanks

    Hi Scott,

     

    I am not sure this answer should be marked as correct. It lookes like you pasted a path for governance minder, since you write gm_home.

     

    I am sure i can find a web.xml in Portal as well but im thinking for future use of this question, other people might find it confusing.

     

    Thanks for replying
