Extending user sessions

User sessions expire when the software sits idle for the time specified on the Connections tab. You can manually extend a user session back to the default time-out period, or enter a zero to disable time-outs.

For more information about defining the default time-out period and disabling time-outs, see Setting user connection options.

If a user time-out period expires, the Admin Console automatically alerts the server with an announcement. Users who are logged in, but not actively working in a database, may risk losing editing updates if you manually kill their session when their user session expires.

For more information about disconnecting users, including soft and hard kills, see Disconnecting user sessions.

You can extend user time-outs for users on the server and performing administration tasks on the Connections tab in the Concordance Desktop Admin Console.
