How do I suppress Session Timeout Alert on the administration console?

Technote (FAQ)


Question

I use IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search (ICAwES). I want to suppress Session Timeout Alert on the administration console but need Session Timeout. How do I suppress only the Alert?

Answer

To suppress the Session Timeout Alert:

  1. Edit the configuration file for the administration console.

    The config.properties file for the administration console is installed in the following location on the search server.

    If you use the embedded web application server:
    ES_INSTALL_ROOT/webapps/adminapp/ESAdmin/WEB-INF/

    If you use WebSphere Application Server:
    ES_INSTALL_ROOT/installedApps/ESAdmin.ear/ESAdmin.war/WEB-INF/

  2. Locate the following lines in the file:

    session.beforeTimeout.warning.time=5
    #disable.sessionExpireDelay=true

  3. Modify these lines as follows:

    session.beforeTimeout.warning.time=0.001
    disable.sessionExpireDelay=true

  4. On the search server, log in as the IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search administrator and restart ICAwES:

    esadmin system stop
    esadmin system start

Tips:
  • To change Session Timeout:

    If you use the embedded web application server:
    Modify the <session-timeout> element in ES_INSTALL_ROOT/webapps/adminapp/ESAdmin/WEB-INF/web.xml

    If you use WebSphere Application Server:
    See the "Session management settings" topic in the WebSphere Application Server Information Center (see Related information below).
  • To disable Auto Logout capability:
    Set session.beforeTimeout.warning.time=0 or comment it out in the config.properties file for the administration console.
