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 http://www.webqa.redhat.com 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.
