This article describes how to shorten a CloudBees CD (CloudBees Flow) web GUI user session.
- Use session cookies - this setting change will not survive a CloudBees CD (CloudBees Flow) upgrade.
- find the php.ini file in the installation directory
- set the session.cookie_lifetime to 0
- restart Apache
- Change the server setting “Idle login session timeout.” It controls the number of minutes before an idle user session is terminated. The default value is 4320 or 3 days. Dropping the setting to 60 is be less convenient for the user but adds some security.
