Unable to increase application identity cookie expiring time


We are working on an upgrade from CMS 11 to CMS 12.

Application identity cookie is expiring within 20-30mins; we are unable to increase expiry time.

Below is the setup we have done in application startup middleware.

  services.AddCmsAspNetIdentity<ApplicationUser>(o =>


                o.ConnectionStringOptions = new ConnectionStringOptions


                    Name = "EPiServerDB",

                    ConnectionString = connectionString



we are increasing the cookie time as shown below, cookie expire time is applying only if we pass IsPersistent as true in AuthenticationProperties in SignInAsync method, actually we set IsPersistent as true based on login remember me.

            services.ConfigureApplicationCookie(options =>


                options.Cookie.HttpOnly = true;

                options.LoginPath = "/";

                options.SlidingExpiration = true;

                 options.ExpireTimeSpan = TimeSpan.FromDays(1);



Can you please review and provide your thoughts if I am missing something?

Have you tried increasing the SecurityStampValidation interval e.g:

services.Configure<SecurityStampValidatorOptions>(o => o.ValidationInterval = TimeSpan.FromHours(10));
