WebUI Session Timer on AOS:8.0
Q:

Types of WebUI session timers in AOS 8.0



A:

The managed device supports two types of WebUI session timers. They are:

 

  • Idle Session Timeout: This setting specifies the time of inactivity after which the WebUI session times out and requires login for continued access.
  • Absolute Session Timeout: This setting specifies the absolute time after which the WebUI session times out post a successful authentication.

We can configure these settings from either the managed device WebUI or CLI.

In the WebUI:

To configure the WebUI session timer using the WebUI, follow the procedure below.
1. In the Managed Device node hierarchy, navigate to the Configuration > System > General page.
2. Under WebUI Session Timer, configure the settings described below

Idle session timeout: This setting specifies the time of inactivity after which the WebUI session times out and requires login for continued access.
Default: 900 seconds
Range: 30-3600 seconds

Absolute session timeout: This setting specifies the absolute time after which the WebUI session times out post a successful authentication.
Default: Disabled
Range: 30-3600 seconds

 

In the CLI:

To configure the WebUI session timer using the CLI, execute the following commands.
(host) (config) #web-server profile
(host) (Web Server Configuration) #session-timeout 900
(host) (Web Server Configuration) #absolute-session-timeout 300

To view the configuration using the CLI, execute the following command.
(host) #show web-server profile
