Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 123654
logins bugzilla.redhat.com expire too early
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:07:46 EDT
Description of problem:
I login to report a problem on bugzilla.redhat.com
I enter a few words, go back to the other computer to lookup some
info, come back after a few minutes... i'm logged out of Bugzilla and
i have to relogin!
The timeout is way too short. Please increase it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.just use bugzilla.redhat.com normally
if you don't do anything for a few minutes, you're logged out
the automatic logout should be enforced after a longer period
Bugzilla login sessions are set to expire something like 30 years from
now so it is not an expiration issue. It very well can be a cookie
problem with the browser you are using. Some things to look for:
1. Make sure cookie support is enabled globally or specifically to
accept cookies from bugzilla.redhat.com.
2. If no 2 is not issue, remove all cookies from bugzilla.redhat.com
using your browsers cookie manager, and try to relogin.
3. Make sure your IP address is not changing frequently such as dhcp
leases running out or your ISP is using revolving gateways/firewalls.
Please let me know if any of these help.
