A session timeout is a security feature that automatically logs a user off when there is no activity after a certain amount of time. Sessions are created when a user logs in with a username and password. Timeouts occur when the sessions go idle for a period of time, meaning when the system does not receive any action from the mouse or keyboard. Timeouts may occur if you step away from your computer or leave a session window in an idle state. Timeouts ensure that sessions close when they are no longer in use, preventing unauthorized access and reducing exposure to data breaches.
The Session Timeout element is the default session timeout interval for all the sessions created in the application. This System level settings will display the default timeout period to the user and mainly used for better security l
The Session timeout will work in the below ways,
When the user is idle for some time( the time Configured for timeout) means no interaction with the application.
A small pop message is displayed informing the user that the session is about to expire including the time interval for closing the session and allow the user to choose either to continue the session(Stay signed in) or to Logout the session(Log out).
When the default time interval is completed again a small pop message is displayed to the user that the Session is Expired and will be redirected to the RIVO login page.
