EP 7.1: Session timeout with Kerberos


Hi all,

We want to plan timeout for the portal such that it happens before the backend session timeout (which is set to default 30 mins now). It so happens that services accessed from the backend times out even when the portal still remains active. Setting parameter SessionTimeout at Visual Admin for portal might help.

Here is my concern.

Right now for the QAS timeouts we could use 25mins and 30 mins for portal and backend respectively. Considering that in case of PRD systems, the time out will be like just 5 mins, is it advisable to keep logging out users in the portal for an idle time of less than 5 mins?

We are going to have Kerberos for SSO in the portal. Will this have any repercussions if we set the value of sessiontimout to say 4.5 mins? Is logging off users so frequently advisable when we have kerberos?

Thanks and regards,
