Handle Session Timeout


is there a way to handle session timeouts easily, in a way that the request is forwarded to the form login page, so that the user could reenter his password?

Has anybody used the JS File /sap/hana/xs/ui/js/session/sessiontimeout.js for this purpose? I have tried to add it to the index.html but I did not work.

    When are you trying to catch the session timeout? During service calls? In my experience when using jQuery.AJAX to make the service calls, I just use the complete event of $.ajaxSetup to look for the form logon redirect in the service response header. That event allows you to hook into all AJAX calls made by the jQuery library centrally and avoid any such handling in the individual calls.


    complete: function(xhr,textStatus) {

    var loginPage = xhr.getResponseHeader("x-sap-login-page");

    if (loginPage) {

    location.href = loginPage + "?x-sap-origin-location=" + encodeURIComponent(window.location.pathname);
