We're running an API Gateway and when it protects a site and issues an
SMSESSION cookie, the session ends in 10 minutes and during this time,
the SMSESSION never gets update.

How can we fix this ?




By configuring the "Manage CA Single Sign-On Configurations" task,
there's an option related to the behavior you see :

Under "Tasks / Users and Authentication / Manage CA Single Sign-On
Configurations" you'll see the option :
  "Update SSO Token"

That option manages the behavior of Api Gateway to update or not the



  Policy Server 12.7 on Linux;
  CA API Gateway 9.4 on Linux;



Enable "Update SSO Token" by checking the option, to get the SMSESSION on every request.
