How to Modify or Disable the Idle Session Timeout on Application Director 6

The Application Director UI is set by default to log you out after 60 minutes of inactivity.  This is a good security practice, but you may wish to modify this time to a longer or shorter period - or even disable it.

As described in an earlier post on modifying the session timeout for the vCAC 6.0 UI you simply need to modify the following file on your AppD virtual appliance. 

Edit the file


and find the following section

The timeout value is in minutes.  Changing it to -1 effectively disables the idle timeout.

WARNING - always back up your AppD appliance when making changes.  Also understand that this is not a supported configuration change so use at your own risk.
