How to set a idle timeout value of a browser session for HARWEB R7.1 web client?

By default, the HARWEB client works in a web browser like Internet Explorer. It will keep an active session after logon to HARWEB. If your web master wants to enforce a timeout value on a HARWEB client, the harweb.cfg file can be modified on the application server for all HARWEB users.


HARWEB controls its own session timeout variable in the harweb.cfg file located in ... /harweb/WEB-INF/ directory.


Note: The unit for the number is in seconds

If HARWEB doesn't find the Session_timeout setting in harweb.cfg, it sets session.setMaxInactiveInterval to -1 (no timeout).

Note: In Harvest 5.x, the session timeout was controlled by a parameter in the web.xml file. Since HARWEB 7.1, the parameter is now in harweb.cfg file.
