Issue/Introduction

Is it possible to set a timeout for the SMP Console?  For example, a user is automatically logged off if inactive for more than 30 min.  If so, how can I do that?

Environment

ITMS 8.6

Resolution

Starting with ITMS 8.6 RU3 release, there is a way to do this.

Quick overview:

  1. On the SMP Console, go to Settings>Notification Server>Internals>Web Sessions>Configure Sessions.
  2. Under "Configure Sessions" page, you can enable this functionality and set required settings
  3. On On the SMP Console, go to Settings>Notification Server>Internals>Web Sessions>View Sessions page, it will be shown all recorded activities.




    Note:
  1. Symantec Administrator is able to force "Log off" or "Reset" for existing current sessions.
  2. User will see this message in browser when session is expired == auto logged off


  3. If user is not allowed to access SMP Console, then this message will be shown in browser
