Auto-logout of dialog type users connected via trusted system

Hello,

We have System AAA. In this system we have users 1234 and 4321 of dialog type.

User 1234 logs in via SAP GUI.

User 4321 logs in via trusted system BBB.

We have set rdisp/gui_auto_logout to 30 seconds.

User 1234 is logged off after 30 seconds.

User 4321 is never logged off.

How can we force user 4321 to be automatically logged off after 30 seconds?

Peter

    User 4321 is ultimately doing the Dialog logon in system BBB. It's separate phenomena that 4321 is getting access to other system AAA as trusted system via remote function call etc. So the Dialog logon time period while idle should be enforced in the system BBB for 4321 and not in the system AAA. Hope this is clear.

    Also the value for rdisp/gui_auto_logout=30 sec is ridiculous. This should be atleast 5 min. I mean, you should not make this value keep in second.

    Hello,

    I've found that if I logout from trusted system BBB then the session in AAA for user 4321 also closes.

    I suppose that we would need to set rdisp/gui_auto_logout in system BBB as well as for AAA.

    Unfortunately setting rdisp/gui_auto_logout is not a favorable workaround for the customer.

    Is there any other way of getting rid of forcing user 4321 to logout?

    Kind regards,

    Peter

    • Hi julius,

      That sounds very good. Having RFC users permenantly logged onto the external system probably is a greater overhead than occasionally having to open a new RFC connection, so I think the RFC connections should be closed explicitly when they are no longer needed.

      I'll check with the customer whether this method is feasible and if so I'll close this thread.

      P.S.

      Kind regards,

      Peter

      Dipanjan,

      We have a reason for setting the auto logoff to 30 seconds. It is not ridiculous in our situation as there are no active users at the time when the parameter is changed. The parameter (rdisp/gui_auto_logout) change occurs dynamically via batch input. We are using this as a cute method of scheduling a logoff of all users from the system.
