Sun Identity Manager 8.1 Business Administrator's Guide

Setting Identity Manager Session Limits

From the Modify Login Application page, you can set a timeout value (limits) for each Identity Manager login session. Select hours, minutes, and seconds, and then click Save. The limits you establish display in the login application list.

You can set session timeouts for each Identity Manager login application. When a user logs in to an Identity Manager application, then the currently configured session timeout value is used to compute the future date and time when the user’s session will time out due to inactivity. This computed date is then stored with the user’s Identity Manager session so that it is available to be checked each time a request is made.

If a login administrator changes a login application session timeout value, then that value will be in effect for all future logins. Existing sessions will time out based on the value in effect when the user logged in.

Values set for HTTP timeout affect all Identity Manager applications and take precedence over the login application session timeout value.
