Disable DSM Terminator

We have an external web site based on EP 6.40. The site is basically built on a mix of KM, DynPage and WebDynpro iViews.

When navigating from a page with a WebDynpro application, the DSM Terminator launches its popup-window to clean up the sessions. This behaviour really slows down navigation and I'm not sure we benefit that much from this feature since we always closes backend-connections etc. within the applications. We also have a very short time out limit for the WebDynpro applications.

I have tried using "SERVER" setting in "Terminator.sendMode" but it also produces the popup.

Is it possible to turn off the DSM Terminator popup somehow?

Best regards

    try the following:

    Log on with a user that has the u201Csuper_admin_roleu201D.

    - Navigate to System Administration -> System Configuration -> Service-Configuration -> Applications -> -> Services -> Common_Configuration

    - Now change the value of the attribute AlertSessionManagementMismatch to false

    - Afterwards press the Save button and restart the Portal to activate the new default settings of the service.

    This should Disable the DSM Session Management PopUp

    Hi Oskar,

    afaik it is not possible to disable the popup. The DSM is not only for releasing backend-sessions but also webdynpro-sessions on the portal host. See note 706938 and 596698 für details.

      Hi Oskar,

      Did you find any solution to hide the dsm terminator pop up window?

      I have also similar requirement but in my case we are accessing sap portal from sharepoint.

      Output of SAP Portal's standard navigation web service gives output as portal urls. Sharepoint developer created links in sharepoint based on output of webservice.

      When we try to navigate from one link to another, dsm terminator pop up window comes,it doesnt looks very good.So we want to hide that pop up window somehow.

      Please let me know if there is any solution.
