    Access Point Timeout Settings

      Does anyone know how to change the timeout settings for a QVW on AccessPoint?  I looked at the server settings in the Management Console and the default was 120 minutes but it seems to be timing out closer to 10 minutes.  Am I looking in the wrong place?

          Under "Sessions" you can set the Maximum Inactive Session Time, Possible Session Timeout, and Maximum Total Session Time.

           

          Maximum Inactive Session Time

          User sessions, which have had no activity during a specified time limit, can be configured to be closed by the QVS. To set the session timeout, enter a suitable figure in this text box.

          Default value: 1800 seconds (0 is not allowed; empty means no limit).

          Possible Session Timeout

          User sessions, which have had no activity during a specified time limit, can be configured to be eligible for being closed by the QVS, if needed. To set the session timeout, enter a suitable figure in this text box.

          Note! The QlikView Server may close inactive sessions and re-use the slot, if needed for other users.

          Default value: 1800 seconds (0 is not allowed; empty means no limit).

          Maximum Total Session Time

          All user sessions, active or not, can be configured to be terminated by the QVS after a specified time limit. To set the session timeout, enter a suitable figure in this text box.

          Default value: No limit (0 is not allowed; empty means no limit).

              Thanks!  I have been hunting around since posting my question this morning and I stumbled across the same settings in the QVWs under Document Settings-->Server.  Do you know which setting takes precedence?

               

              Thanks for your help!!

                    In part of your answer, you posted this:

                    Does that mean that the QVS might still override all configured settings if it needs resources for other users?

                      In addition to the timeout settings in QEMC, timeouts may be set for individual documents in the Document Properties, Server pane. The more restrictive of the two settings will be used. You may have the 10 minute value set there.

                        Hi All,

                        I would like to add one more question to this thread.

                         

                        If a user closes their browser, does that kill the session or is it cached? If all of the settings are set to infinite, will the sessions just keep building up over time until a server restart?

                         

                        Thanks
