Session Configuration (Design Studio, Data Catalog, Scheduler, Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool)

You can configure the maximum session timeout in the Design Studio, Data Catalog, Scheduler and Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool web applications.


This is not an inactivity timeout and it will be applied even when the user is active.

This feature is disabled by default and the following configuration parameter is provided:

  • session.maxTimeToLive=0


You can set this parameter in the following configuration files: conf/design-studio/ in the Design Studio, conf/data-catalog/ in the Data Catalog, conf/scheduler-webadmintool/ in Scheduler, and resources/apache-tomcat/webapps/diagnostic-monitoring-tool/WEB-INF/classes/ in Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool.

You can specify the time unit in hours, minutes or seconds (minutes will be used by default). The following examples set 1-hour timeout using different time units:

  • session.maxTimeToLive=3600s (seconds).

  • session.maxTimeToLive=60m (minutes).

  • session.maxTimeToLive=60 (minutes will be used if the time unit is not specified)

  • session.maxTimeToLive=1h (hours).

In order to disable this feature, you can use negative or zero values.
