Description Jay Turner 2001-04-11 10:16:29 EDT
I last was logged into webqa about 16 hours ago.  I started up Mozilla this
morning and went to and was shown as being
logged in.  What is the timeout on these sessions?  Since we are not
allowing the user to select this value, I really think that we need to make
this a shorter term.
Comment 1 Tom Lancaster 2001-04-11 14:58:28 EDT
The cookie we set lasts 24 hrs. The RHN area obviously has a different mechanism
for timing people out based on inactivity.
What is the consensus on duration of these cookies? 2 hours?
Comment 2 Jay Turner 2001-09-18 08:46:49 EDT
We have worked through the cookies issues now.  Closing this out.
