How to configure the session time-out

Overview

Squared Up uses a default session time-out of 20 minutes. You may want to increase the session time-out to:

  • Avoid the user having to re-enter credentials when using Forms authentication
  • Avoid delays associated with creating a new session

Procedure

Squared Up uses standard IIS / ASP.NET settings for session timeout.

It is not possible to set different session timeouts on a per user basis, or to disable to timeout entirely.

Configure Session timeout

  1. Navigate to SquaredUp (or SquaredUpv4 if running two versions alongside each other).

  2. Double-click on the Session State icon.

  3. In the Cookie Setttings section you can change the Time-out (in minutes).

Forms authentication timeout

If you are using Forms authentication you will also need to configure the authentication timeout:

  1. Navigate to SquaredUp (or SquaredUpv4 if running two versions alongside each other).

  2. Double-click on the Authentication icon.

  3. Right-click on Forms Authentication and click Edit.

  4. In the Authentication cookie time-out (in minutes) text box, type the number of minutes you want to use for the time-out value, and then click OK.
