Automatic session timeout handling in AppScan Enterprise

In AppScan Enterprise application a session is created for every user login instance that remains active for a configured duration. By default, session expiry duration is set to 2 Hours. If a login user is not active in the application for this set duration, then the application considers it as session timeout and logs out from the session.

Before a user login session is due to expire, the application displays an alert message to the user who is not active on AppScan Enterprise application prompting to take necessary action. If the user does not take any action to remain signed in at this point, then the application automatically sign out user from the session.

Session expiry scenarios in AppScan Enterprise application

When your login session is inactive, the application displays an alert message in the following scenarios:

  • The Session is about to end

    This message is displayed few minutes before the session is about to expire. You can choose to sign out or continue to remain signed in to the application.

  • Session Expiry

    This message is displayed when the login session time has already expired. You must click Okay to return to the application login page.
