There is another web.xml file at server/default/jboss-web.deployer/conf/web.xml. It has session timeout set to 30 minutes. Try changing that one and see if it helps.
Thanks a lot for the reply. I tried the option you specified.
server/default/deploy/jboss-web.deployer/conf/web.xml and made the value to 2 hours. But still the login page is comming back after 30 minutes.
Anyway the http session is still there after loggin in.
Is there any other option that i can give a try.
Does the tester, by any chance, close his/her browser at any time?
I know that for our portal I set the timeout to 10 hours so that I do not have to log back in during the day. And that is working for me - as long as I keep Firefox running the portal never asks me to log in again that day.
I know this is an old issue, but has anyone ever found a resolution to this (or should I start a new thread)? I'm having the same problem with the Web Console to JON. We are trying to push out the timeout so that it happens after 8 hours. I've changed the session-timeout value in the web.xml file under the JON home and restarted the rhq-server.sh service but the users are still getting timed out after about 2 hours. Should I be looking at browser settings, or are there other settings I should be looking at?
Just as a followup, I was told by a Redhat rep that this is a hardcoded setting for JON. The only workaround would be a browser pluging to automatically refresh the browser within the hour.
