    Title:
    Automatic logout by profile
    Summary:
    Automatic logout by profile
    Content:

    Good day!

    I'm aware that you can force an automatic logout for user, but can this be done based on a user's profile?  In other words, can the logout time differ between user profiles? Thanks!

    Yes it will override the CLIENT_SESSION_EXP (minutes).

    See: How can we remove the Console Locked message?

    To exempt automatic logout by profile:

    1. Click the Configuration button on the navigation pane.
    2. Double-click Profiles under Staff Management. The report opens on the content pane.
    3. Select the profile you want to edit and click the Open button on the ribbon.
    4. Click the User Settings tab to display the Session Timeout field. (Beginning in November 2013, this tab is called "Other".) 
    5. To exempt staff members associated with this profile from being subject to an automatic logout, type 0 in this field.
    6. Click the Save and Close button on the ribbon.

      Yes, it can be set in the profile on the Other tab

      Hey Sebastiaan!

      Thank you for the quick response.  I now see the Session Timeout in the Other tab.  My two questions are:

      1 - Will this override the settings in CLIENT_SESSION_EXP?
      2 - What format must the time be entered in (hours, minutes, etc)?

      Great!  I looked into that documentation and see that the format is 'minutes.'  Thank you so much for your help!
