Session Timeout

Hi, I'm wondering if the EPIserver has a session timeout setting? My session is timing out after 1 hour and i want to set this to 8 (!) due to maintenance. Thanks, Kjetil Simensen

Are you thinking about session state, or the EPiServer user login? EPiServer does not use session state, and the timeout for the EPiServer login is in the system.web/authentication/forms/timeout value in web.config (which I thing is 20 or 30 min. by default.) Note that the 4.61 hotfix 1 (get it through the support) fixes a problem regarding sliding expiration of this timeout value. /Steve

Hi Steve. We are thinking about EPiServer user login. Can i set the timeout like this? Is timeout number in minutes or seconds? BR, Tore

Yes you can. That would mean 60 minutes. I also see that EPiServer has the default of 120 minutes for this value, not the 30 minutes that is the 2.0 default. /Steve
