Change session time

Case:

User has to login again after 10 minutes of inactivity.

Solution:

The global session time had to be extended, e.g. to 1 hour. The following steps show how to do this:

1. Start Cognos configuration for the environment you wish to edit.

2. Go to Local Configuration\Security\Authentication

set_session_time_1

 

3. Change the value for “Inactivity timeout in seconds”

Old value: 600

New value: 3600 (is one hour)

4. Save de settings (floppy icon)

5. Restart the services.
