gui auto logout

This is regarding SAP auto logout.

When activity is not detected in the systemfor a pre-determined period

of time, the user is automatically logged out from the system.

Users mentioned that they are often disturbed by phone calls from the

vendors and need to stop working in SAP immediately. Then some time

later the session gets closed and the data is lost, at this stage, it

is too late for the users to do anything and they will need to restart

whatever they were doing before.

Is there any possibility of enhancement for this auto logout mechanism

so that SAP gives users a chance to save the data?

For example, a pop-up message indicating that the session will be

closed down 5 minutes in advance of actual logout time will give a

chance to save the data to users.

This feature is not available in SAP standard but i do like to know whether you have customers who insist of having this and what's your workaround?

Thank you

    Many thanks Ganesh,

    I do have the rdisp/gui_auto_logout defined. But that is not the case. What user want is that there will be a pop out message to warn user that their session has been left idle for n number of minutes and will soon be closed before the gui actually terminated. They could be having many session open. All along we have restricted user from having multiple session (which we have done). Let me know how you manage such situation in your environment

    Cheers

    Hi Kelvin,

    Paramater rdisp/gui_auto_logout controls auto logout if user session is idle for specified parameter value. Try to increase the value using T-Code RZ10.

    This would indeed be a very nice feature.  I get a lot of complaints from users about the lack of warning before the auto-logout occurs.
