AWI/ ECC Session Timeout

Discussion created by Karin_Wasinger_8156 on Apr 4, 2017
The Standard Session Timeout is 30 minutes.

This is the standard setting of the Tomcat Server.

The session timeout can't be changed within our application.

If really necessary the session timeout can be raised in tomcat and therefore affacts all applications installed on tomcat.

To change the session timeout of tomcat you need to do the following:
- Stop Tomcat
- navigate to the tomcat installation
- open the folder "conf" of you tomcat installation
- Edit the file "web.xml" which belongs to this folder
- change the following tag to a timeout which suits you more:

  <!-- ==================== Default Session Configuration ================= -->
  <!-- You can set the default session timeout (in minutes) for all newly   -->
  <!-- created sessions by modifying the value below.                       -->

    <session-config>
        <session-timeout>30</session-timeout>
    </session-config>

BEWARE: That is no guaranteed session-timeout, but only sets the minimum time before you are logged out automatically.
