We have a security policy that web applications should have idle sessions timeout. We have Lansweeper set up with AD integration for a single sign on (SSO) experience. Is there some way to make the session timeout and force the users to either close and reopen their browsers or to sign in with credentials after a length of time?

Thank you,

Hello there!

Within Lansweeper, there is no configuration option to have idle sessions timeout. Perhaps this is possible within IIS Server, but I'm not familiar with setting this up.

The default web server is IIS Express though, which is probably too limited to configure something like this. So in case you need this, here are migration instructions:

  • To migrate your existing console running under IIS Express (the default web server), to IIS, please reinstall just the web console by following these instructions:
  • When you get to step 10, choose the Advanced (IIS) option.
  • Do note that IIS must be enabled on the machine to be able to get this option. If you haven't yet, enable and install Internet Information Services on your Lansweeper server via Add/Remove Programs. Specifically, the full Web Management Tools and World Wide Web Services feature list.

@beth_albertson did you get a solution for this inquiry?  I, too, am looking at the automatic timeout period.  Thanks.
