Terminating idle sessions automatically

Updated in 2022.1

When your product license supports the Concurrent Users model, you may want to enable automatic termination of idle sessions to free up unused license resources. You may also want to terminate inactive sessions for security reasons.

NOTE: Automatic termination does not affect user sessions established under named accounts. If you want to close named sessions, terminate them manually. For details, see Terminating user sessions.

To configure automatic termination of idle concurrent sessions, follow the steps below.

  1. From the Sidebar, navigate to Users & Security > User Sessions > Logged Users.

  2. Select Automatically terminate idle sessions for concurrent users check box and specify the idle timeout period in minutes.

    To disable the automatic timeout feature, clear the check box.

  3. Click Save.

Once the specified idle timeout period passes, Alloy Navigator terminates the user session, informing the user that their session times out due to inactivity.
