Automatic Logout of Viewer Application

Article # 3040749 - Page views: 58


How can Insight be configured to automatically log the user out of the Viewer application (dashboard) if there is no activity?


From the Insight server(s):

1. Backup Program Files\Kofax\Insight x.x.x\HtmlInsight\View\web.config file.

2. Edit that file and modify the following two lines:

    <add key="Insight.Web.AutoLogout" value="false" />
    <add key="Insight.Web.AutoLogoutInterval" value="5" />

3. Set AutoLogout  value to true. That will enable the feature.

4. Set AutoLogoutInterval minutes to a value you want the logout event to occur. For example, setting a value of 10 will log the user out of the session after 10 minutes of no activity.

5. Restart IIS


NOTE: Beginning with v6.5, this feature is configured in Insight's Admin application. Refer to the Online Help for more details.
