Configuring a Session Timeout Period

You configure a timeout period for user and device sessions that are monitored by event log sources, after which the JIMS server will attempts to send a domain PC probe to the device and receive a reply. If the PC probe of the device fails, the JIMS server infers a logout event. The PC probe helps determine a logged-in or logged-out state for the user or device.

Note:

The setting of the Session Timeout value depends on the time sensitivity of the user firewall policies configured on the SRX Series devices.

An event log source can be a Microsoft Active Directory domain controller or Exchange server.

To configure the session timeout period:

  1. In the navigation pane, select Settings and then select the General tab.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. In the User Session Configuration section of the Settings > General tab, enter a session timeout period in the Logoff Time text field. The JIMS server setting applies across all SRX Series devices. This value can be between 1 and 1440 minutes. The default value is 1440 minutes.

    This timer starts after Juniper Identity Management Service sends a report to the SRX Series devices. Any login event, successful PC probe, or user update restarts this timer.

    Note:

    If PC Probe credentials have not been configured, Juniper Identity Management Service considers the user logged out when the session timeout period has expired.

  4. Click Save to save the settings.
