[deepamehta-users] Automatic Logout

Hi Constantin,

normally DM does *not* log you out automatically. There is no session timeout.

Once logged in DM creates a session in its webserver. The session ID is hold in a cookie. The cookie is a "session cookie", that is it has no expiration date. So your session is only lost when a) restarting the DM server (in particular its web server), or b) when you restart the browser (or delete the cookie manually).

So, at the moment I have no explanation for what you're experiencing as "automatic logout". What actually makes you think DM logs you out? What are particular (error) messages in the server log resp. the browser's console?

Do you use the DM Standard (resp. Karaf) distro, or do you provide your own (OSGi) environment and web server? Can you confirm that the JSESSIONID cookie stored in your browser has no expiration date (but is a "Session" cookie), as seen in the attached screenshot?

The reason for it is that the backend logs me out automatically because no backend related activity takes place. Hence when I press save, the editing session is no longer valid.
