Altair® Monarch® Server


Setting User Session Timeout

The server provides two parameters that allow setting up a timeout period, after which user sessions within the application expire and need to be renewed. These parameters are stored in the file web.config, the path to which is as follows:


One parameter is located in the authentication mode Forms; this parameter checks the time of the last request from the user when half the time defined in the parameter passes (for example, if the specified time is 10 minutes, the check will be performed on expiry of 5 minutes).

The other parameter is located in the Session State mode In Proc; this parameter checks when the last request was sent. Session timeout period is the amount of time from the last request.

In the Monarch Server applications, the parameter used by the system is the one with the smaller value.
