Can we increase RTC web session timeout ?

Is there a way to increase the web session timeout ? Similar what you can do with for example CQ Web ? I could not find any appropriate settings under the "advanced properties"section.

The links you provided address the admin console timeout. Does it apply to other (CLM) applications too?

The deployment descriptors define 6 hours, but from the experience of our users the time out is shorter than that.

This is configured in the Web server (Tomcat / WebSphere) rather than in the Jazz UI. For example, if you're using Tomcat, it should be in install_dir/jazz/server/tomcat/conf/web.xml, look for this section:

This seems not working for me. I posted comments here:

Any advice?

My tests show that it seems the timeout setting in web.xml deployment descriptor will "overwrite" the timeout setting in install_dir/server/tomcat/conf/web.xml.

I have a customer who has asked to do the same thing as Henrik is asking i.e. to extend the session timeout period for the web client.

Is there a supported way of doing this?
