Setting the console session timeout

The session timeout for the console is 24 hours by default. When this duration is exceeded, all inactive users are logged off automatically.

To set a different timeout value, configure the server.sessionTimeout application parameter, which specifies the timeout duration in seconds. You can set the value as an init parameter either in the console or on the command line.
  • Console

    In the PingAuthorize administrative console, go to Web Application Extensions > Console. Specify the timeout value in the Init Parameter field.

  • Command line

    Use the dsconfig tool. The following example uses a value of 1800 seconds (30 minutes).
    dsconfig set-web-application-extension-prop --no-prompt \ 
    --extension-name Console \ 
    --add init-parameter:server.sessionTimeout=1800

For the changes to take effect, restart the HTTP(S) Connection Handler, or the server itself.
