Troubleshooting Idle Timeout

The GUI is often disconnected automatically after few minutes idle time and would want to modify to timeout later.


The idle timeout was introduced in Data Platform 5.2 for security reasons, and is controlled by a "sessionTimeout" variable for each user.

There is no control for this in the GUI, but you can change this via the Command Line Interface, by establishing an SSH session to the Delphix Engine as an administrative user.

The following example sets the session timeout for the delphix_admin user to 10 minutes:> user user> select delphix_admin user 'delphix_admin'> update user 'delphix_admin' update *> set sessionTimeout=10 user 'delphix_admin' update *> commit
