RE: Session Timeout Setting in Business Intelligence Platform 4

      Greetings. We are using Business Intelligence Platform 4 SP 2.5. We use LDAP authentication for logging in to the CMC, BI Launchpad, and Lifecycle Management console. Our sessions expire after 10 minutes (of either activity or inactivity). I haven’t been able to find the setting that controls the timeout. Does anyone know?

      Thank you in advance,

      Dave

      Hi Dave,   TO make the change for the timeout we need to navigate to following location:   1. Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\Tomcat6\webapps\BOE\WEB-INF 2. Open the web.xml. Search for the "session-timeout" and change the value to as per your requirement. 3. This change would take effect on both CMC and BI LaunchPad. 4. Restart the Tomcat.   At <INSTALLDIR>\Tomcat6\conf\web.xml change 30 to 60:     <session-config> <session-timeout>60</session-timeout> </session-config>   Regards, Sonia
