Portal User Idle Timeout:

Hello Folks,

Can someone tell me if there is a way in standard SAP Portal to set a timeout value for the user inactive/idle time period or what is a good way to achieve this.

I have reviewed earlier posts on SDN that talk about session-timeout value in web.xml, login-ticket lifetime period and some custom implementation and most posts don't know what they are talking about.

I have Portal versions: EP 6.0 SP02 & EP 6.0 SP15

Thanks and Regards,

Phani - SAP Basis Expert.

    Hi Phani,

    It is not possible to set the session timeout in the portal. You can set the session to terminate after an absolute time,but not to terminate after a particular length of idleness.

    Please check the following notes on portal session inactivity:

    SAP Note 1650050 and SAP Note 1599643.

    Regards

      Hi Apurva,

      I have not seen any customer using this parameter for idle time out. This parameter is specific to application integrater iview. You can try it.
