Chapter 4 Current Sessions
This chapter describes the session management features of Sun ONE Identity Server. The Session Management module provides a solution for viewing user session information and managing user sessions. It keeps track of various session times as well as allowing the administrator to terminate a session.
The Current Sessions Interface
The Current Sessions module interface allows an administrator, with the appropriate permissions, to view the session information for any user who is currently logged in to Identity Server.
Figure 4-1 Current Sessions Interface
Session Management Pane
The Session Management pane displays the name of the Identity Server that is currently being administered.
Session Information Window
The Session Information window displays all of the users who are currently logged into Identity Server, and displays the session time for each user. The display fields are:
Displays the user ID of the user who is currently logged in.
Displays the amount of time (in minutes) remaining that the user has for that session before having to reauthenticate.
Max Session Time
Displays the maximum time (in minutes) before the session expires and the user must reauthenticate to regain access.
Displays the time (in minutes) that have expired without the user performing any action.
Max Idle Time
Displays the maximum time (in minutes) that a user can remain idle before having to reauthenticate.
The time limits are defined by the administrator in the Session Management Service. See Session Attributes for more information.
You can display a specific user session, or a specific range of user sessions, by entering a string in the User ID field and clicking Filter. Wildcards are permitted.
Clicking the Refresh button will update the user session display.
Terminating a Session
Administrators with appropriate permissions can terminate a user session at any time. To do so:
Select the user session that you wish to terminate.
