Environment : This article applies to Aruba Instant Access Points.


In Aruba Controller configuration we term it as user idle-timeout, where as in Instant AP it is called as "Inactivity Timeout" and is located in the SSID profile.

This timeout value is the maximum period after which a client is considered idle if there is no wireless traffic from the client. The timeout period is reset if there is wireless traffic. When a client session is inactive for the specified duration, the client is aged out and is removed from client table.

The wireless client need to re-associate the wireless network again. And, if the network is guest SSID with user authentication enabled, the user need to get re-authenticate.

By default the value is configured to 1000 seconds. Range: 60 - 1000  seconds

Below screenshot shows the "Inactivity Timeout' in the web interface:



Following screenshots show the configuration from CLI:


NOTE:  As shows above in the image "Commit Apply" command needs to be executed to save and apply the configuration.
