IssueHow to set a session timeout when accessing the Admin Console to automatically log out the user after a certain period of time?
User is not logged out automatically based on a session timeout short enough.
Resolution

Currently we have the ability to set a session timeout. This is a configurable value in the application server setup. The user is forced to log back into the admin console after that period of inactivity is reached.


To adjust the value in an application server like Tomcat, locate the [Tomcat_home]/conf/web.xml file and change the following value:


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

NotesThis solution applies only to software deployments of RSA Data Protection Manager. It does not apply to RSA Data Protection Manager Appliances.
