Configuration Manager - Commerce - Login Timeout

To use the login timeout security feature for a store, you need to define the LoginTimeoutErrorView and ReLogonFormView views for the store.

Note: Define the LoginTimeoutErrorView and ReLogonFormView views as described in Views for Login timeout.

The Login Timeout node of the Configuration Manager enables or disables the login timeout feature for cookie-based sessions. When this feature is enabled, a WebSphere Commerce user that is inactive for an extended period is logged off the system and requested to log back on. If the user then logs on successfully, WebSphere Commerce runs the original request that was made by the user. If the user logon fails, the original request is discarded and the user remains logged off the system.

For WebSphere Commerce tools (such the Administration Console and WebSphere Commerce Accelerator), the login timeout feature does not present a relogin page to the user. Instead, it closes the browser window and it is up to the user to log back on to the tool. Thus, in the case of tools, the original request that the user submits is not processed.
