APMIA - Windows - Staring with console_start stops the agent when a user logs out. Is this a known limitation ?

Environment

Release : SAAS

Component : MOBILE API

Resolution

On Windows, this is expected behavior. All processes belonging to your user are killed when you log out. Windows does not have a nohup. 

The only way, in Windows, that you can have a process started by a user continue running after logoff (i.e. what "nohup" does) is to start it either through a "scheduled task" or as a Windows service. When the user logs off all processes in their logon session will be killed



Additional Information

If UNIX, use nohup
