User Session handling in Silk Central

User Session handling in Silk Central

For remembering user sessions currently the value for inactive sessions is 30 minutes but this is dependent on some other factors. 
The remember login option on the login page (enabled by default) overrules this timeout. If the option is disabled and a user is inactive for more than 30 minutes, Silk Central terminates the session, checks-in the license, and presents the login page upon next access. 
If you want the session timeout to take affect each time your must disable the remember login function by default, users will still have the option to tick this if they want. 
If you want to disable the remember me function by default you can:
  1. Browse to the install directory:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Silk\Silk Central 15.5\conf\frontendserver
  2. open the SccFrontendBootConf.xml
  3. In the login section, make the disable login false, and set the cookie age (can be set to a minimum of 1 day).

    <!-- true, false - as a default setting for the "remember login" checkbox at the login page--><MaxCookieAge>30</MaxCookieAge>
    <!--The age in days how long the the cookie for the login information should be valid.-->
    <!-- The percentage of total memory available that must be free to allow more users to login -->
This will mean by that by default users logging in without "remember me" will have their session terminated after 30 minutes.
