Admin console timeout


I’ve looked everywhere but I can’t seem to find a setting to increase the login timeout for the admin console on Openfire 3.6.4. It can be a bit frustrating finding your session has been logged out when you return to it.

Is it possible to increase the idle timeout?



I added this extra configuration to the web.xml file and restarted the openfire service

root@server:~# vim /var/lib/openfire/plugins/admin/webapp/WEB-INF/web.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>   <display-name>Openfire</display-name>   <context-param>       <param-name>org.eclipse.jetty.servlet.MaxAge</param-name>       <param-value>3600</param-name>    </context-param> root@server:~# service openfire stop
Stopping openfire: openfire.
root@server:~# service openfire start
Starting openfire: openfire.
