Can User Access be Revoked After a Set Period of Time?

Can user access be revoked if there has been no login for a set period of time?  For example, if a user has not accessed Hue or other applications after 90 days, can their access be disabled?

Thank you for your reply!

 

Perhaps I am mistaken, but the informaiton in your link appears to be regarding how inactive sessions can be timed out, such as with the idle_session_timeout property.

 

I am seeking a method to disable a user account which has not been used for a period of time, such as 90 days.

The text should actually be

# Users will expire after they have not logged in for 'n' amount of
seconds.
# A negative number means that users will never expire.
## expires_after=-1

we will fix it. Thanks!
