Hue Session Timeout

Hue Session Timeout

Good day.  We recently lowered our Hue Session timeout (i.e. ttl) to be 10 minutes per our security team's recommendation.  One of the things we've found out is that the cookie is not extended during activity.  That is, if a user logs in and works for 10 minutes, they will be forced to log in after 10 minutes - no mater what.

 

Is there any way, or thoughts for the future, to modify this behavior so its 10 minutes of 'inactivity'.  I know defining 'inactivity' is hard to do, but wanted to check and see if anyone had thoughts on this.

Re: Hue Session Timeout

How about instead using the

# Users will automatically be logged out after 'n' seconds of inactivity.

# A negative number means that idle sessions will not be timed out.

idle_session_timeout=-1
