Session Configuration (Design Studio, Data Catalog, Scheduler)

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

Important

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

Note

You can set this parameter in the following configuration files: conf/design-studio/DesignStudioBackend.properties in the Design Studio, conf/data-catalog/DataCatalogBackend.properties in the Data Catalog, and conf/scheduler-webadmintool/ConfigurationParameters.properties in Scheduler.

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.
