"Your session has timed out" problem

Hi.

Sometime, I got message "Your session has timed out; restart the application" in portal.

What means this message ?

If It is for session timeout, Where can I change timeout duration ?

Regards, Arnold.

    HI Arnold

    look at following

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/bd/6ca740aa053a13e10000000a155106/content.htm

    You can set the session timeout for the irj(which is the portal) application in the file \usr\sap\<EP_SID>\j2ee\j2ee_01\cluster\server\services\servlet_jsp\work\jspTemp\irj\root\WEB-INF\web.xml

    Change the element

    <session-timeout>

    ur value in minutes i.e 60

    </session-timeout>

    regards,

    Hi.

    Thanks for everyone.

    I checked Session timeout for irj and It was 30 minutes.

    I just found some problem from my test.

    1. Some iview timed out after 15M inactivity in spite of 30M timeout. (Show error message "Your session has timed out" in content area)

    2. Some iview doesn't time out after 30M inactivity in spite of 30M timeout. (doesn't Show error message "Your session has timed out" in content area)

    Anyone has ideas ?

    Regards, Arnold.

    Hi everyone.

    Thanks for the answer.

    This contents is not page but iview.

    I directly assign this iview to role and we got message in this iview.

    Any other comments ?

    Regards, Arnold.

      Hi,

      I see it happening from time to time in our QA environment. I don't know why. And this is only happening for my "Portal Desktop Object".

      Currently, there's a sync problem in our QA instances CI and DI. The portal desktop objects appear differently in both machines even though they shouldn't.

      If I go to my DI instance and look at the portal desktop object, it sometimes times out saying "Your session has timed out; restart the application" in red color in the content area (there's no inactivity, I just click it open and try closing it right away).

      I think both these problems are related. .

      Does anyone have any clue?

      Thanks,

      Kiran
