Changing Session Timeout Value

To change the session timeout value:

  1. Login or switch to the Brains user.

  2. Open the file /var/lib/brains/.brainspace/


    Create this file if it does not exist.

  3. Create/edit the inactive.session.timeout= property (in minutes), and then change the value.

  4. Restart the services, as the root user, by running systemctl restart brainspace-platform.


    Restarting services requires you be user root.


    Users will need to login after changes are made and Tomcat is restarted.


    Please remember making this idle session timeout value greater than 15 minutes (which is the default) is not recommended due to security concerns.
