timeout interval in SAS Studio

I know that we can use the Time-out interval option in the Preferences dialog box to set the time-out (in hours) for our SAS Studio session. If I (SAS administrator) want to increase this interval for everyone at my site to 4hours, how can i do this ? is it in App server(/sas/SAS94BASEP/SAS_94/SASStudioBasic/3.4) or Web/midtier server(/sas/SAS94WP/SAS_94/SASStudioMidTier/3.4/) ?

Re: timeout interval in SAS Studio

Hi @Go

 

answering your question, what you ask is normally done on the middle tier as described on:

http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/bimtag/68217/HTML/default/viewer.htm#p12gmxy6s5hazln1kog...

and for the Single Sign On timeout:  http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/bimtag/68217/HTML/default/viewer.htm#p0nc5rk5mnlmwin11xl...

 

Please note that SAS Studio is not configuredon the same way. As you mention, this is configured on SAS Studio through the UI interface.

 

Also, there are a couple of hotfixes that might help you. Please refer to:

 

Problem Note 55886: SAS® Studio times out in two or three hours regardless of the preference setting: http://support.sas.com/kb/55/886.html

Problem Note 56550: SAS® Studio Mid-Tier enterprise edition times out after 12 hours even if a longer time-out interval has been set: http://support.sas.com/kb/56/550.html

 

Please let us know if this actually helps you.

 

Best regards,

Juan

Re: timeout interval in SAS Studio

Have you tried using the webdms.maxSessionTimeoutInHours configuration property?  This property specifies the maximum value for the Session time-out value in the Preferences dialog box. The default value is 240.

 

For more information about these configuration properties, see the SAS Studio: Administrator's Guide, specifically this topic:  http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/webeditorag/69506/HTML/default/viewer.htm#n0ke09ir9n1sdf...

Re: timeout interval in SAS Studio

webdms.maxSessionTimeoutInHours=240
is this 240 hours applicable to my environment right now ?? How can I enable it ? I mean if I keep my studio session unattended it will die in 1 hour, how can I make it to 4 hours by editing this config file - do I change it to 4 from 240 ?

Re: timeout interval in SAS Studio

Afaik by editing the config file the maximum session length is set. Not the users session length. SAS Studio creates some user-specific configuration files - check personal folder of the users on your app-server ( not mid-tier), but i don't think that an easy way exists to increase session length for all users automatically.
