LMS3.2: is it possible to modify timeout session

Hi,

On windows, is it possible to modify the default timeout session ?

What is the default value ?

Many thanks for your help,

Elisabeth

which timeout?? - I assume you are talking about the web server timeout !?

I found this in one of my notes I made years ago ...

... the entry is still there in LMS 4.1 so I believe it is still valid...

(I do not know if you have to restart dmgtd afterwards)

make a backup of the following file:

    NMSROOT/MDC/tomcat/webapps/classic/WEB-INF/web.xml

open the file in a text editor and look for the tag below; the session-timeout is given in minutes (default: 2h);

keep in mind that changing the value has impact on the web server load (i.e. do not make it too long..)

the tag should be at the very end of the file:

   

        120

   

Hi Martin,

Many thanks for your response.

Does LMS has a max duration web session ?

Many thanks,

Elisabeth

If I define a session timout of 120 min, wouldn't that be (ok, nearly) the same as a session with a maximum duration of 120 min? What do you want to achieve?
