Change the web session inactivity timeout
For security reasons all the web sessions log out (timeout) after periods of inactivity. Clicking a link or refreshing a page resets the inactivity timer. Closing the browser window/tab also ends the session (i.e. the session cookies are not persistent). The default timeout periods for different login types are described in the table below:
These timeout values (a period given in minutes) are configurable via the config keys below. A value of 0 indicates that the session never times out. The special value DEFAULT indicates that the PaperCut defaults (in the above table) are used (the PaperCut defaults might change in future versions).
|web-login.admin.session-timeout-mins||Inactivity timeout for the admin web interface.|
|web-login.web-cashier.session-timeout-mins||Inactivity timeout for Web Cashier.|
|web-login.release.session-timeout-mins||Inactivity timeout for the web based Release Station.|
|web-login.user.session-timeout-mins||Inactivity timeout for the user web interface.|
See Using the Config Editor for information about changing config keys.
Changing the inactivity timeout values take effect the next time users log in. Note that some pages periodically refresh the page (or data on the page), such as the dashboard and the web based Release Station. A session does not time out if a browser is left on these pages, as it is considered active.
